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. She celebrated and enjoyed cake with the clinic staff. After some ups and downs with post-transplant procedures, Blank now is doing well. Parker said the transplant also marked the third time someone from Bethesda Church has donated a kidney to another.
