A Family Transformed: The Hostert Story

Three years into his marriage to Kathleen, Craig Hostert was diagnosed with an autoimmune kidney disease. In 1998, two and a half years into dialysis, Kathleen donated a kidney to Craig and gave him a second chance at life. After a successful transplant surgery, the Hosterts became ambassadors in the transplant community and founded the successful Donate Life Run/Walk. When Craig’s kidneys failed again 14 years later, his son Justin stepped in to give his father another kidney and the gift of life. This is the story about a family with an extraordinary bond.
