Patient Ambassador Tour – Rady Children’s Hospital
October 3 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm UTC-7
Every year, the Chris Klug Foundation (CKF) visits a collection of hospitals and organ procurement organizations (OPOs) nationwide to inspire and provide hope for pre-transplant patients, transplant recipients, donor families, living donors and caregivers in addition to hospital staff and volunteers. This annual Patient Ambassador Tour, sponsored by Astellas Pharma, connects healthy, active and accomplished members of the transplant community—our Patient Ambassadors—to these individuals and provides encouragement to those in need.
On this California leg of our 2019 tour, CKF will be hosting an open conversation full of exciting games and activities for the Rady Children’s Hospital’s kidney, liver and heart transplant support group in San Diego. Chris Klug will be joined by liver and kidney transplant recipient, Valen Keefer, to discuss their transplant journeys and answer questions from parents and kids alike. The support group will take place on Thursday, October 3rd at 5:00 PM (PDT).
