Episode 55 show notes: On episode 55 of The Gifted Life Podcast we welcome Dr. Christine Durand back to the microphone and hear about expanding options for potential kidney recipients. A new medicine is curing Hepatitis C and it’s providing a way for more donors to save lives. Dr. Durand tells us about the Expander 1 project. Then we talk to a kidney recipient who participated in one of these pilot trials. Her experience is a testimony to how Hepatitis C donors can help save more lives than ever before. In our favorite part of the podcast, we honor Hero Steve Melancon, and then we answer a listener’s question right here on episode 55 of The Gifted Life Podcast.

THANK YOU to popular Louisiana party band Bag Of Donuts for helping us SAVE MORE LIVES! These band members have a flair for make-up, outrageous costumes & a unique brand of 'super pop' songs that make every show a fun party! Now, they are using that popularity in an effort to increase donation awareness during #NationalDonateLifeMonth! We always *thought* they were pretty cool dudes...now we *know* for sure! And, special thanks to our LSU go-getters - known as Pitch Communications - for helping us make this connection! ❤️💚💙! #DonateLife #DonateLifeLA *Help us share this post with your friends & all fans of #BagOfDonuts!* @pitchcomm_donate
