Karen grew up with two sick parents — two sick but incredibly loving parents. Her mom died when Karen was just 10 years old, and her dad has dealt with medical and kidney issues her whole life. Karen is 22 years old and living in Spain when she learns her dad’s health is deteriorating again. He needs a new kidney. And thankfully, Karen has one of those to spare.
