Give the gift of life (St. Paul's Hospital)
On Nov. 1, 2017, Sid Adams received a kidney through the living organ donor program at St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver.
“I am now five months post surgery, and improvement to my health and life are far beyond any expectations,” Adams told Vernon city council. “I now have the opportunity to live out my remaining years in quality. No amount of money could buy that.”
Organ donation has been thrust into the spotlight in the aftermath of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash.
