Dad, son take part in 10-person kidney link

By Kelley Luckstein

Like most college students, Andrew Dinsdale had some time off last week. But unlike most college students, he spent part of that time giving one of his kidneys to a stranger.

 

While a surgeon worked on Andrew, another stranger in the same building was giving a kidney to Andrew's dad, Tom Dinsdale, 72, of Reinbeck…

 

On Tuesday, the Dinsdales took part in a 10-person kidney chain that began at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and stretched all the way to Scottsdale, Ariz.
