Jesse Epperley, Mae Opie

Jesse Epperley talks about why he became an organ donor as Mae Opie, a kidney recipient (though not from Epperley) listens. They both live in Bel Air and are members of the same church. He wanted to give a kidney to her, but they were not a match. Through the University of Maryland Medical Center he donated to another person and she got a kidney.Baltimore Sun photo by Kim Hairston
