My best friend got a Kidney transplant and this was the perfect gift for the occasion! So happy she and all the kidneys are now out of the hospital!
Wow, congrats to your friend on the new REAL kidney! Very exciting!
When my brother had prostate cancer, his daughter gave him Petie Prostate. Petie went to every treatment with my brother and eventually rang the bell with him. That launched a family tradition.
My sister needs a kidney now. I offered one of mine and immediately bought two I Heart Guts kidneys - one for my sister and one for me. My kidney’s name is Katrina Kidney. My sister will name hers when our surgery is scheduled. Recently, I had to go to Duke Medical for two days of testing to confirm that I am a match for my sister. Katrina came with me to Duke and I introduced her to my surgical team. She now sits on my desk at home - reminding me of the great adventure that my sister and I will embark on. She reminds me to eat healthy and be at my best for surgery day. Katrina will be with me every step of the way just like Petie was with my brother.
Our family has a great sense of humor and Petie and Katrina are just what the doctor ordered.
I have attached some pictures - let the journey begin!!

Deborah, this truly made our day! THANK YOU—for sharing your journey with us, for giving us the dirty deets, and for sending pics to boot. We wish you all the best on this wild ride, and hope all goes smoothly. Our guts will be there with you every step of the way. Thinking of you, Petie, Katrina, and the whole fam!
I have a friend, who over the last 2 years has had countless UTIs, and a couple kidney infections. Even a surgery for a kidney stone removal. After hearing she had yet another, I remembered the IHeart guts and got her a kidney. I told her it was for when hers were being mean so she could beat it up right back. She LOVES it. Totally worth it and it arrived in about 36 hours after purchasing, and I live in Hawaii. Beyond satisfied.
Glad the kidney is getting a good beating for being naughty. Pleased it arrived quickly! Once this kidney found out it was going to Hawaii, nothing could stop it from jumping on the next plane to your pal.
I a transplant patient that received a kidney. This February was my 10 year anniversary with it. When I found your site I had to buy a kidney plushie
Wonderful, congrats on this amazing anniversary! Three cheers to you, your kidney, your donor and your plush kidney!
