Sarah (Sally) McCartin 
Founder
President, Board of Directors
Living Organ Donor (Kidney)

Sally McCartin is a living kidney donor.  ​​​

Her journey began in August of 2013 when she donated her left kidney to a fellow hockey mom, though they had only known each other for one season. Sally was inspired to found Kid-U-Not as a result of her experience. Among the numerous issues she faced was the prospect of unpaid leave from work. She knew that her short term disability would activate after the first 14 days. Thankfully Sally had an excellent A&R union and supportive co-workers that assisted in covering her lost wages. The recipient of her kidney also offered to assist financially if needed. 

Sally was blessed to have such a wonderful support system. Unfortunately, all living organ donors do not receive such support. As a result, Kid-U-Not was established to assist living organ donors in the State of Connecticut. Kid-U-Not provides information and emotional and financial support, and will occassionally lobby for living organ donor rights and benefits. 

Sally is a graduate of Albertus Magnus College, where she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management. She has worked for the State of Connecticut in the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection for ten years. She has two adult children, Sarah and Kade, and a loving, supportive husband Walter.
