For Bob Dickson, the reality of transplant has hit home more than once. Years ago, he donated a kidney to his brother. Then in 2010, his son, Scott Lang, the men’s basketball coach at LaRoche College, suddenly passed away. His tissue and corneas were donated to many, including a librarian who lost her eyesight and can now see to read to her grandchildren, thanks to Lang.
