Confessions of a Kidney Transplant Recipient
Mary H. Wu
Mary Wu, an ABC (American-Born Chinese), was diagnosed with renal agenesis at the tender age of 3-years-old and in the 1980's when organ donation and transplantation was still in medical research development and lacking public awareness. Her parents, who were immigrants from China, were told that kidney transplantation was the only option to save her life.
Mary Wu's life experiences and the many people along the way who guided her throughout her journey are told with candid information and inspiration to enlighten and engage readers for years to come.
