Michael Kutcher, brother of actor Ashton Kutcher, will return to University of Iowa Children's Hospital in Iowa City on Monday, April 9, 20 years after receiving a heart transplant there.
Kutcher will meet with children who also have received a heart transplant, and with other pediatric patients who are waiting for a donor heart to become available, during a tour of Iowa's only comprehensive academic medical center beginning at 10:30 a.m. A ceremony honoring donors, their families and transplant patients will occur at noon in the Clasen Board Room.
April is National Donate Life Month. More than 110,000 Americans, including at least 600 Iowans, are currently awaiting a life-saving organ transplant. To join the Iowa Donor Registry, visit www.iowadonornetwork.org.
