Travels with the Courier

Ann Parker and James Blank pose with a copy of the Coastal Courier on May 17 outside the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla. One week earlier, Parker had donated a kidney to Blank. They are good friends, and both attend Bethesda Church in Hinesville. Parker's donation marked the 1,000th kidney donation at the Jacksonville Mayo Clinic.
