FORT WORTH, TX – Texas State Senator Kelly Hancock (R-Fort Worth) today underwent a successful kidney transplant at Medical City Fort Worth after more than 30 years of living with chronic kidney disease. Hancock’s son-in-law, Greg Cox, was the match and volunteer organ donor. Both are expected to make a full and speedy recovery.
"Each of us faces unique challenges in life," said Hancock. "Robin and I decided years ago that we wouldn’t let this disease slow us down, and I couldn’t be more grateful to her and the rest of our family for their constant love and support."
Julie Fine of NBC 5 DFW sat down with Hancock and Cox prior to surgery to discuss their journey. View the story online here: https://www.nbcdfw.com/news/health/state-sen-kelly-hancock-recovering-after-receiving-a-kidney-donation-from-his-son-in-law/3013606/
