Gift of Life Transplant House in Rochester, Minnesota. In February 2009 my wife, Deanna, received a kidney transplant at the Mayo Clinic. Since 2007, we have traveled numerous times to Mayo for tests, treatments, and finally a transplant. The Gift of Life House was our home away from home for much of this time. As a donation-run communal mansion, it provides long term housing for transplant recipients, their donors, and families. We are forever grateful to them and those who support their efforts. The donation for the sale of these prints will be made in the name of my wife, Deanna, and her donor Trevor White.
