Alyse Bartczak, BSN-RN, CPN, PSO, CPPS is a pediatric nurse at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and a living kidney donor. Alyse altruistically donated her kidney to 6 year old Elizabeth (pictured with Alyse) on June 19th, 2017.
“Working as a pediatric nurse, I witnessed the agony and desperation that families go through while waiting for an organ for their child. This was my motivation to get evaluated as a living kidney donor.”
Alyse is also a pre-school ballet teacher, is learning to play the ukulele, is taking her first mission trip to Argentina in March, recently backpacked the Grand Canyon, and loves reading and snuggling with her Great Dane, Altidore.
“I would not have been able to take this amazing journey without the incredible support of my boyfriend Ryan, my family, friends, co-workers, and the incredible staff at Froedtert Hospital. Life is such a gift. To help give that gift to Elizabeth has been, and always will be, my life’s greatest achievement.”
