Patient Voices

Charles Cook

In the space of two years, Charles Cook received a new heart and a kidney. The transplants not only saved his life but also instilled a deep commitment to helping others in need. As a member of the Can-SOLVE CKD Patient Governance Circle and the Transplant Ambassador Program, Cook is using his voice and his story to help pave the way for future patients to receive better care.
