On Sunday, we celebrated an amazing milestone: the 50th anniversary of our first transplant. That transplant, done in 1964, was a living kidney donation between two identical sisters. They joined us Sunday at Crisler Arena for an ice-cream social along with about 600 people. Check out the photos and remember #donatelife. You can help us save lives for the next 50 years.
