Most folks are born with two kidneys, but did you know some people have three 💜 💜 💜 ? When you’re born with more than two, those extras are called supernumerary kidneys and it’s extremely rare, with fewer than 100 known cases. Having three kidneys is more common following a transplant — they hook up the new one and leave the old one in!

Happy Kidney Awareness Month!

“We have received the organs and it was like Christmas morning for the transplant team.” - Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

Maybe not transplantable organs, but we hope The Guts bring lots of joy to the kids awaiting organ donations this holiday season!
