Mavis N. Thomas
Kidney Transplant Patient, Wilmarshare
Mavis Thomas was on dialysis for seven months before a friend selflessly gifted her with a new kidney.
Under the care of Dr. Scott Young and Dr. John Dunn at the Baptist Health Transplant Institute, Mavis had a successful transplant procedure and now believes that her quality of life is better than it's ever been before.
"The doctors were the best I've ever had and all of the nurses were wonderful," says Mavis. "I wouldn't trust anyone else with my health like Baptist Health."
Keep on healing. Keep on loving. #KeepOnAmazing
