Our next story features the miraculous recovery of Rob Waddell. He was given an adult stem cell transplant at the same time as his kidney transplant nearly four years ago. Because his donor was willing to give both, Rob now lives free of any anti-rejection drugs and his kidney may last for the rest of his life. Stay tuned to stemcellrsearchfacts.org for this heartwarming story of hope. Should be posted in early May, 2013.
