July 5, 2022

When Tawanna Davis a quarter-century ago bore her son, Quinten Hogan, she gave him the gift of life. On June 28, Hogan returned the favor, giving his mom, who coped with end-stage renal failure, his left kidney. Hogan explains his selfless gift this way: My kidneys are her kidneys. Their “living donor” surgery made UMMC’s history books as the Medical Center’s 3,000th transplant since Dr. James Hardy in 1963 performed the world’s first lung transplant.
