One Decision, Two Lives: The Power of Organ Donation

Louise Lerminiaux, Transplant Diagnostics Business Transformation Lead, and her lifelong friend share their story as a donor and recipient pair with Science With A Twist

Our very own Louise Lerminaux, Business Transformation Lead, and her lifelong friend Conna Jones recently chatted with Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Science With A Twist podcast about their journey as a donor and recipient pair.

As someone born with Polycystic Kidney Disease, Louise knew for many years that she may need dialysis as well as a kidney transplant. Thanks to her dear friend Conna, who was found to be a match shortly after giving birth, Louise was able to start a new chapter of her life in 2008 as a kidney recipient.
