Margaret ‘Meg’ Bacino donated her kidney to her son Nick when he was 5 years old after several months of caring for him including dialysis in their home. After his transplant, Meg ran half-marathons and triathlons to increase awareness of being a living donor. She was also involved in fundraisers that supported and encouraged organ donation. After 10 years of health Nick began to have decreased kidney function and for the last few years Meg has been with him in dialysis 3 times per week. She changed her career and has sacrificed her entire life to ensure and protect her son who is now 19. Meg also made a difference in outliving herself by sharing her experiences with others and encouraging those who she met to consider organ donation.
