Gift of kidney “overwhelming” (St. Paul's Hospital)
When Pam Easton heard her long-time friend Dale Langford was on dialysis and in need of a kidney, she didn't hesitate to offer hers.
“He needed one and I had one. There was totally no thought into it at all,” she says. “It wasn't really a huge decision for me. I wasn't going to sit by and let him be sick.”
Both had their operation done at St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver in early 2016. Langford was heading out of the hospital with a new kidney as Easton went in to donate hers.
