Team Illinois TGA Manager

Brian Stiner

Brian Stiner has competed in multiple sports in eight Transplant Games, and this year signs on as manager of Team Illinois for the 2022 TGA. Brian previously served Transplant Life Illinois as vice president and team sports captain during the 2018 Games and as co-manager in 2020 for the Reimagined Games.

Diagnosed with IgA nephropathy as a young adult, Stiner soon needed a kidney. His sister became his hero donor on June 22, 2001, at the University of Chicago Hospital. His transplant has enabled him to continue traveling with his job as an engineer, share in adventures with his family, and compete in various Games around the country.

Brian, a resident of Batavia, looks forward to once again playing team volleyball and playing for the Spare Parts basketball team in San Diego.
