barb steinberg for transplant ambassador program

Barb Steinberg

My journey began at age 6 with my first kidney surgery. I was then stable for many years, gave birth to three healthy, fabulous children, travelled, skied, cycled, worked full-time in a private practice, exercised, etc. and enjoyed a normal, active lifestyle. By early 2000, my lab tests indicated progressive kidney failure. More tests, more meds, a special diet.....leading to a transplant in 2005. I'm one of the lucky ones. My two brothers, along with my dear friend Peter Seligman, came forward as potential donors. Peter won the lottery and wanted the surgery before he left on a ski trip. Fortunately for me, I would have been on dialysis had my surgery happened a day or two later. Do I believe in transplants? Do I believe in donors? Do I believe in living donor transplantation? You bet I do!!! barb.steinberg@transplantambassadors.ca
