Harvey's Kidney Journey:  
In 2000, Harvey was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  Unheard of a the time, he had a stem cell transplant.  Over 20 years later, 7 grandchildren, and countless hours with family and friends, his doctor noticed the decrease in kidney function as the result of chemotherapy.  A kidney transplant was going to be  needed  in the future.  In November of 2021, Harvey started dialysis.

Introducing Bob...
In 2008,  Harvey and Betty Ann met Bob and  Roz Morrissey on a cruise in Greece.  They quickly became close friends and enjoyed many more travel adventures together.  In August of 2021,   Bob and Roz expressed their interest to have Bob tested to donate a kidney to Harvey.   In January of 2022 we sadly lost Roz to cancer.  Finally, In September 2022, the doctors confirmed that Bob was a 100% match as kidney donor for Harvey.

On September 22, 2022,  Harvey will undergo a kidney transplant with Bob as the living donor.   We will try to use this site to give updates on Harvey and Bob's Journey.
