The Give and Take of Organ Donation
Thursday, July 30, 2015

When you're truly committed to something, be it a person or a cause, it's said that you "give a part of yourself." This adage was doubly true for Tim McDermott and his siblings, Mary and Jeff, who each donated a kidney as Tim's began to fail. On today's HearSay, Tim and his family share their story as we explore the complex physical and emotional processes involved in organ donation. We'll also speak with Virginia physicians and facilitators who specialize in organ and tissue donation and transplantation.

Short of Breath, Not Courage: Cystic Fibrosis
Wednesday, July 22, 2015

Brother and sister, Morgan and Meade, were diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis before they were even born -- a life-threatening genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system.  What followed was a daily routine of 15 to 25 different medications, airway clearance three times a day, and twice-yearly hospital visits.  In 2013 Morgan received a lung transplant, and her brother, Meade, is being closely monitored for one as well.  For them, living with Cystic Fibrosis is a family affair, and today they join us today to share their stories.
