Kathleen gave Donnie her kidney and the gift of life

When pharmacist Kathleen Kirkland’s patient, Donnie, told her he’d been approved as a kidney transplant recipient, she volunteered to donate hers to him. Without Kathleen’s amazing sacrifice, Donnie, a pastor in Kernersville, North Carolina, may not have lived to meet his new baby grandson.

Thank you, Kathleen, for this extraordinary gift to your patient. #CVSHeartAtWork
