Joined by a Kidney

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/up_front/article/joined_by_a_kidney_20020906

On the anniversary of Sept. 11, we offer a pancultural exchange with a happy ending. Back in November, UP FRONT reported about Patricia Abdullah, a Caucasian woman of Muslim faith who, after leading an unsuccessful search for a type O-positive kidney donor for acquaintance Mike Jones, an African American Christian, ultimately donated her own kidney. The Sept. 25 procedure was performed by Jewish and German surgeons at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, a hospital founded by Jews.
