Megan, John, and Kevin in the mountains
Board Member Spotlight:

Meagan McCaslin


Megan has been part of the PAVE family for almost a decade. She started her journey with PAVE as an intern and is now a dedicated board member.

Megan was recently diagnosed with FSGS, a rare kidney disease, which means her life now depends on a kidney transplant. She is on a waitlist for a cadaver kidney, but that likely takes 5-7 years. Megan needs a transplant from a living donor, which can last longer and happen more quickly.

And that’s where you could help! As either a potential donor or by spreading the word. If you or someone you know has ever considered donating an organ and is O +/- blood type, please consider filling out the donor health screen – the button is on the right side of this webpage: https://pslmc.com/specialties/kidney-transplant/

If you have questions about what being a donor would mean, I can connect you to Megan or you can reach out to her transplant coordinator Kathryn O’Dea at kathryn.odea@healthonecares.com or 720.754.2106.

You can also help by sharing her story–the more people who see it, the better Megan’s chances of finding a match!

Megan is an amazing woman, wife and dog mom of the best dog – Kevin! She is a dedicated member of the PAVE team and has championed the fight to end violence in our community for over almost a decade.
