World Series of Poker Celebrity Kidney Transplant Recipient
Meet Jennifer Harman. She is apparently one of the most famous female professional poker players in the world, having done quite well at the prestigious "World Series of Poker" tournament. It turns out she is also a kidney transplant recipient, having undergone 2 transplants. Admirably, she has become a real advocate for patients with kidney disease, seeking to raise awareness for living organ donation. Recently, she announced that she would be donating 1% of all profits to the NephCure foundation, which funds research relevant to nephrotic syndrome and FSGS in particular.
