Hobart is one of the kindest, gentlest people we have ever met. His big blue eyes exude comfort and compassion, while his smile makes all feel welcome. Hobart keeps his brown hair short and neat. His eyebrows are a lighter brown and very thick. Hobart has a narrow frame and a lean swimmer’s build; he exercises daily, keeping himself in great shape. His facial features are all symmetrical, making Hobart very handsome.

Hobart loves giving to others—his time, his energy, his comfort. As a nurse practitioner he has traveled outside of the United States to do volunteer work and feels it is his duty to help as many people he can, particularly those patients who are otherwise underserved. Hobart adores his family and appreciates the world around him. He is a fantastic donor.

 

Genetic Testing

Over the years, we have expanded our genetic testing of donors as genetic knowledge and technology have advanced. As a result, not all donors have been tested for the same conditions or with the same methods. All donors have undergone genetic testing for Cystic Fibrosis, Spinal Muscular Atrophy and Karyotyping.  However, many donors have had more extensive testing performed.

This donor has been evaluated for carrier status of the listed conditions. A negative result reduces, but does not eliminate, the likelihood of the donor being a carrier. If you are a known carrier of a genetic condition please contact us, and we will provide a copy of the donor's test reports to your physician and/or genetic counselor.
