20 Years of New Life: Ambassador of Hope Reaches Significant Milestone
Ann Sturrock lives life to the fullest. She creates, travels and volunteers, and she will compete in the Donate Life Transplant Games in August.
And it's all because nearly 20 years ago, her sister, Gina, donated a much needed kidney in Ann's time of need.
Ann was diagnosed with a genetic disorder in which clusters of cysts develop primarily within the kidneys, causing them to enlarge and lose function over time. When it was discovered that she would need a kidney transplant, "all five of my brothers and sisters, mother and ex-husband all offered to donate," Ann said.
