Sisters In Metro-Detroit Rejoice On Anniversary Of Kidney Transplant

In a heartwarming story, two sisters, Teresa Rouse and Robin Wright, are commemorating the 40th anniversary of a life-changing kidney transplant. Teresa, a resident of Ortonville, received the kidney from her sister Robin, who lives in Waterford. While the average lifespan of a kidney from a living donor is typically 18 to 20 years, this remarkable bond has defied the odds.

Now 75 and 71 years old respectively, Teresa and Robin have made it a tradition to mark their transplant anniversary with a special celebration. In previous years, they have enjoyed dinners together and embarked on trips to destinations like Chicago and Las Vegas. To celebrate this significant milestone, the sisters have planned an exciting trip to Soaring Eagle, where they will indulge in some gambling and catch a show.

Their enduring bond and the success of the kidney transplant highlight the importance of organ donation and the potential for life-changing impact on both donors and recipients. This heartening story serves as a reminder of the incredible resilience and love that can flourish between siblings, even in the face of adversity.
