Inspiring Story of Gooding, Idaho Woman Who’s Donating a Kidney to Her Dad
Most of us would do just about anything for our families. That’s certainly true of a Gooding, Idaho woman who is donating a kidney to her dad.
Cathryn Hernandez and her family face this challenge. Her dad needs a life-saving kidney transplant. She has been approved as the donor. But, there’s a caveat. While her dad’s surgery is covered by insurance, her (and her husband’s) costs of losing work time when she’s donating her kidney are not.
I will be down for minimum 8-10 weeks to heal. My Mom, Grandma, and Sister are taking time off work to take care of me , my 3 baby boys, and also help with the children I baby sit. After the surgery I will also have to take who knows how many trips back to Utah .
Cathryn shared this recent picture of her dad in the hospital.
Here’s a picture of Cathryn and her family now.
