My name is Peter Schoemann. I am the President of Builder's Stone Publishing, LLC and a member of the Eckstein family. One of the most compelling stories that I have ever heard is the one of the Ecksteins. Not the story of the smart, tough, and talented baseball player.  That is a great story. But the compelling story is of 4 family members, including 3 siblings, going through kidney failure and the family's inspiring reaction. Builder's Stone Publishing, LLC is privileged to provide a piece of the story on this web site. Periodically, we will add videos concerning this and other stories. Our hope is that, after seeing the videos, if you are not already an organ donor, you will become one. Thank you.
