How it Feels to Save a Life

Michael Bobich doesn’t consider himself a hero. But when he discovered he had the ability to step forward and save someone’s life, he didn’t hesitate.

Twelve years ago, Michael became a living kidney donor.

Today, the recipient is still enjoying the incredible gift of a new lease on life, thanks to Michael’s selfless act.
