Life Ignited

Imagine as a child you are told that your kidneys aren’t functioning and you are going to die! Then four members of your family step up so that you can live.

That is the amazing story of David Trajillo. In this interview by Fr. Mike, David tells the story of his life. At age 3 months, his parents find out that he has kidney problems and had to be put on dialysis. Then at 3 years old, his father donated a kidney for him. That lasted ten years. Then at age 13, an uncle donated a kidney; at 21, an aunt and then the fourth one came from a stranger. This last one was a swap – his brother donated and they gave David one from a stranger. As David’s story unfolds, we hear of the difficulties and challenges he has faced, but also his inspiring story of faith. He is a sign of hope to all of us. We hear from his mother and girl friend and the part they have played in this journey. David has established IGNITE – In God Now I Trust Everything – to help transplant patients and their families.
