The Ultimate Gift

It's easy to say you'd do anything for the person you love, but I'm not sure everyone would selflessly give an organ away to ensure your partner would get a much needed kidney. I just photographed Rob and Kate Pattison in Toronto for The Canadian Blood Services, and Kate proved that she would!

They participated in the new Living Donor Paired Exchange Program, allowing Kate to donate a kidney to a stranger she will likely never meet. That allowed Rob to receive a kidney from the loved one of another kidney patient. What an incredible gift!
