RIO GRANDE VALLEY/EDINBURG, Texas (KVEO) – By becoming an organ donor, you are “celebrating the gift of life” says Doctors Hosptial at Renaissance (DHR) staff.
DHR is stressing the importance of becoming an organ donor, especially for failing kidney’s – one of the most common diseases in the Valley.
“You need to be healthy to donate a kidney,” said Dr. Mourad Alsabbagh, DHR Medical Director of Transplant Center. “We do a lot of tests for the patient and [the donor] until we make sure that this donor is one hundred percent healthy.”
