Local kidney donor and recipient celebrate a milestone  |  July 19, 2010

Kelsey Crider, a 21-year-old Boulder woman, recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of her kidney transplant, her third following two failed transplants. Crider, who was diagnosed with kidney disease at the age of 19, was given the kidney from living donor Kaye Basedow of Westminster. Basedow decided to become a living donor after seeing Crider’s story in the paper nearly two years ago. Crider reminded her of her own daughter and Basedow says she was inspired to help. The women recently celebrated the transplant anniversary together.  Read more about their story here.
