NEWARK, NJ – Bureaucracy was standing in the way of Nina Saria’s life-saving kidney transplant, until Senator Menendez stepped in.
For Nina Saria, it was a matter of life and death. Desperately in need of a kidney transplant, she found a match – her mom – living half a world away. But the government denied her mother the visa she needed to travel from Georgia to New Jersey to save her life. That’s when she called Senator Bob Menendez. His efforts to cut through government bureaucracy worked and today Nina is happy, healthy, and living proof that Bob will always fight for what’s right.
