Organ donation is one of the most incredible gifts a human being can give to humanity. It is a decision that takes courage and a great desire to help another person who is known or unknown to them. There are very few people in the world who have accepted this call not once but twice (!!) and offered to donate their organs to complete strangers.

In fact, there are less than 100 people and less than 50 men in the entire world that have done what our today’s guest has done. What makes him so special?

Jay Julian donated one of his kidneys in 2010 and 60% of his liver in 2020. He’s completed 10 half or full marathons and is registered for his first trail ultra-marathon this fall. Jay is a transplant mentor with the American Transplant Foundation. 

In addition, together with his wife, Jay leads care groups that build bridges between parents/grandparents of trans and non-binary children/grandchildren, their families, and the church.
