Meet Bob and Gary

When his family found out that Gary needed a liver transplant, his son-in-law immediately offered to be a living donor. Gary hesitated, thinking it was too much to ask, but was eventually convinced when Bob proved to be a match. There was no hesitation, however, about where to have the surgery. “The UPMC transplant team and my son-in-law gave me a great gift,” says Gary. Bob adds, “When I see my kids playing with him I think, ‘Wow, that’s exactly why I did this.’”
