My Story

I wrote about my being a tissue recipient on my other submission. But I am also friend and family to organ recipients, as well as many tissue recipients. I’m also honored to know several donor families. All of us recipients are humbled by the generosity of donors. Our bodies are healed by their gifts, and we have tremendous gratitude to our donors–known and unknown. I want donor families to know that they are not alone in thinking about their loved ones. We recipients do as well, with love and gratitude.
