dc.descriptionIncludes descriptive metadata provided by producer in MP4 file: "Video @ Vanderbilt - Videos - VUCast Extra: Faith, love and science in a story of survival." By Vanderbilt University. The video tells the story of Kelly Finan, a 2009 graduate of Vanderbilt, who survived multiple complications of kidney disease, including strokes that required brain surgery, before receiving a transplant from Dan Romano under miraculous circumstances. Finan, Romano, Finan's parents, and others speak, and Finan is shown receiving her diploma at Vanderbilt's Commencement exercises in May 2009. Amy Wolf also tells how Finan, while still a student, led and helped finance a successful effort to make a playground at the Susan Gray School for Children, which is on the Peabody campus and serves children with developmental disabilities, fully accessible to children in wheelchairs.en
