Episode 119: Ali Dawson – Living Donor, Advocate, and Donor Mentor

Kent speaks with Ali Dawson. Ali is from the UK and chose to give one of his kidneys to one of his colleagues, Sonia. His story is unique in that he now has become a huge advocate and plans to altruistically donate a part of his liver in the coming years! The whole experience has been life-enriching beyond anything he could ever describe. Ali shared with Kent, “Of all the things I’ve ever done in my life, this has definitely been the happiest & I definitely recommend organ donation.”
