“He needs a kidney, I’ve got a kidney, let’s go”: New podcast

Carol Wilson never has to buy her husband Ian another Christmas gift.

The doting wife gave her partner of more than 40 years the incredible gift of a kidney — just in time for Christmas for Ian, a local shopping centre Santa.

Carol and Ian join us on the latest episode of Western Sydney Health Check to discuss how they made the decision, and the “phenomenal” care they received every step of the way from Western Sydney Local Health District.

Ian’s tendency to get lost in Westmead Hospital was no problem when everyone from nurses and orderlies to volunteer buggy drivers is happy to offer directions!

The couple also share some advice for anyone seeking to emulate their wonderful love story.
