Article: "Second chance"
Posted 3/29/2011 3:49pm [from Jun Akiyama]

This article entitled "Second chance" is about Brent Beaumont who recently received his sixth dan in New Lynn, New Zealand, 15 years after receiving a kidney transplant. From the article: He received a kidney transplant from a Glen Eden woman on April 19, 1995. "In my late 20s I started to become really crook but didn't know why," he says. "I found out both my kidneys had failed and was instantly put on dialysis but knew I couldn't stay on it forever." He spent two years in daily treatment every six hours before getting the transplant. "The moment I had the transplant I felt great. I now consider April 19 my second birthday."
