As a guy with his sister's kidney keeping him alive, organ donation and transplant = pretty big deal to me, so I hope you can help out The Gift of Life Transplant House. Today, guest blogger Kristin Eggebraaten fills us in on their cookbook fundraiser.

The Gift of Life Transplant House in Rochester is home for thousands of transplant patients a year. This house provides patients with a safe, clean, comforting place to stay before and after their solid organ or bone marrow transplant. The house is a nonprofit organization that runs on the kindness and donations of people like you.

This year, we have produced a cookbook with amazing recipes from friends and families of the house. You can purchase one for yourself or one for every member of your family! All proceeds will go to support the Gift of Life Transplant House.

The cookbooks are only $10 and can be purchased at the Gift of Life Transplant House at 705 2nd Street in Rochester from 8am-5pm Monday-Friday. You can also contact Russ at 507-293-1859 or send us an email at transplant-rst@mayo.edu to arrange pick up.
