Keith Kalber was a patient at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital who received the first HIV+ to HIV+ kidney transplant in the state since the new law went into effect.
Keith was diagnosed with HIV and spent years getting that in check.
At some point, Keith went into kidney failure. As he was HIV+, nothing could be done to treat him except dialysis until a new law went into effect allowing him to receive a kidney from an HIV+ donor. Marty was a good match, so they set up for Marty to donate his kidney. However, upon hearing the potential risks to the donor, Marty briefly backed out, unbeknownst to Keith. Once he saw Keith's reaction and how good a friend he was, Marty decided that he was willing to go through with it despite the risks to himself. The kidney was successfully donated.
When Keith needed a kidney, Marty offered upon finding out that he was a good match.
Keith mentioned that many of their other friends had died and they survived.
