“This chance to help Greg Sawyer is my way of giving back a little of what was given to my family in 2001 when we went through the same challenges Greg faces today,” Hannah wrote.
“My grandmother donated a kidney to my dad, Gordy Waite, because he needed a transplant. The amazing support we received from our family, friends and this community helped us get through this experience smoothly.”
