ROCHESTER, Minn. – After being open for three decades a local transplant house is getting help from a book.
Edward Pompeian, a life-saving transplant survivor and founder of the Gift of Life Transplant House, is releasing a new book. We are told it details his early life and how the homes came to be in Rochester. All the money from the books, which are on sale at the gift shops inside the transplant homes, will go right back to benefit the homes.
If you didn’t know, these locations help house transplant patients who are waiting for surgery and after surgery. The cost of housing is much cheaper than a hotel and Pompeian says they are so full they may need to expand.
