Story of Hope: Stephanie & Scott

“It’s humbling to set aside your own life for a while so that another person can reclaim theirs.” – Stephanie

Stephanie Holladay’s journey to becoming a living kidney donor began when she learned that a woman from her hometown needed a kidney transplant. Stephanie thought she might be interested in donating one of hers and began the testing process only to learn that she wasn’t a match. The story could end there, but Stephanie’s heart had been touched by the suffering of those with kidney disease. She Googled “Oregon kidney donor” and that is where she found Scott.

Scott found himself in kidney failure caused by a disease called IgA Nephropathy, and for four years, Scott continued the delicate balance of family and work while he also endured in-center dialysis treatments three days a week, four hours each time. Scott faced chronic fatigue and the constant worry of heart attack or stroke. He did not have time to be sick, but sick was what he was.
