With the increase of chronic diseases such as Type II Diabetes, the need for kidney transplants is on the rise.

Karen Scott Gledhill was shocked in her early 20's to find out she had a rare genetic kidney disorder. Fortunately, her life was saved by a deceased donor, and then again many years later by the life-giving gift of her brother Tom Scott, who joins her to share their story.
