Advocate Spotlight: Warren Wells

After about 30 years of diabetes, Warren’s mother’s kidneys started to shut down and she began dialysis. He knew he had to do something to help. After a few months of extensive testing, Warren gave his mother the ultimate gift when donated a kidney to her on Valentines Day of 2003. All of this happened while he was on active duty in the Army in a unit preparing to deploy to Iraq. Thanks to some understanding leadership, Warren was allowed to donate and recuperate before deploying and meeting my unit later on. Now Warren is one of Our Advocates for Life and volunteers to help spread awareness about organ, eye and tissue donation. Help us in thanking this hero!
