On September 28, 2018 Martha Gershun donated a kidney to Deb Porter Gill, a woman she met after reading about her need for a new kidney in the Kansas City Jewish Chronicle. Gershun’s newest book, Kidney to Share, co-written with medical ethicist John Lantos, MD, chronicles this journey and explores the medical, scientific, and ethical issues surrounding organ transplantation. It will be released on April 15, 2021 by Cornell University Press. Here’s the link to pre-order on Amazon.
Here’s a link to Gershun’s synagogue newsletter, featuring a column she wrote about this adventure.
