Norwalk’S Winn’S Owner Thriving And Returning To Work Post Kidney Transplant

The owner of Winn’s, a well-known restaurant in Norwalk, Iowa, is slowly getting back to work after undergoing a successful kidney transplant. The recipient of this life-saving procedure, Winn’s owner Kelly Tisdale, expressed her gratitude and announced that she is “feeling great” as she starts to ease back into her daily routine. Tisdale’s journey to obtain a new kidney began two years ago when she was diagnosed with end-stage renal disease, necessitating dialysis treatment as she awaited a donor match.

Fortunately, she received the gift of life from a generous living donor, whose identity remains anonymous. Tisdale emphasized her deep appreciation for this selfless act and the overwhelming support she received from the community during her recovery. Her resilience and determination to return to her beloved restaurant signify a new chapter in her life, filled with gratitude and renewed hope.

Tisdale’s story serves as a reminder of the importance of organ donation and highlights the positive impact it can have on individuals and their communities. With her health steadily improving, Tisdale is eager to resume her role at Winn’s while forever grateful for the lifesaving transplant that has given her a second chance at life.
