The ultimate gift: how a kidney transplant changed the lives of two Alaska women
Two Alaska Airlines workers took the spirit of giving to new heights this year. In March, Jodi Harskamp, a pilot, donated a kidney to a flight attendant, Jenny Stansel.
Before the gift of Harskamp’s kidney, Stansel’s face was pale and haggard. Despite dialysis, her kidneys were failing rapidly and she didn’t expect to live long.
Nine months later, it’s a different story. In Part 3 of this week’s Frontiers Rhonda McBride talks with Harskamp and Stansel about the transplant – and its impact on their lives.
