Astellas Awards Scholarships to 12 Transplant Recipients and Donors Who Embody Hope, Courage and Achievement
Date:9/15/2010

NJDaniel was a normal high school senior and two-sport varsity athlete when he learned he had high blood pressure. Daniel's physician encouraged him to see a cardiologist and then a renal specialist "just in case," and soon received a diagnosis of MPGN Type II or Dense Deposit Disease. When Daniel began freshman year at the University of Vermont, he was focused on his Elementary Education major, but the thoughts of needing a kidney transplant lingered.

Daniel has always wanted to be an Elementary Education Special Education Teacher and knows that the challenges and triumphs he has faced during the transplant process will give him greater understanding and empathy as a teacher. Daniel looks forward to completing his undergraduate degree and also serving as inspiration to other young transplant recipients.

After his diagnosis, Ted experienced many medical procedures and challenges: the surgical implantation of mechanical assist devices (BiVADS) to sustain his heart, the tracheotomy and the stroke. While Ted's classmates were preparing for senior year, he spent his summer working with doctors, nurses and physical therapists to prepare for a heart transplant. Apart from the support and encouragement of his transplant team, Ted was also greatly inspired by other transplant recipients. Ted has taken an active role in the transplant community since his heart transplant in September 2009 and has raised money and awareness through various initiatives, such as the "Teddies for Teddy" program at a local elementary school. Ted looks forward to returning to Notre Dame to complete his English degree and plans to continue his support and dedication to
