Donating Kidney to Fellow Rotarian

Lyle Ryan (14-15 District Governor and member of the Rotary Club of Arlington from 1983-1986) will be sharing his story of donating one of his kidneys to a fellow rotarian Michael Walsch (District 7810).

Lyle and his wife PJ, became friends with Michael and his wife Francine as part of their leadership training for the Rotary Governor path. When Lyle beame aware of the health issues that Michael was having, he wanted to help. He stepped in and learned that he was a perfect match to Mike for a donation of one of his kidneys. On April 30, 2018 the operation was completed at St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver, BC.

A true example of the selfless actions and impact our fellow Rotarians have!
