I‘m thankful I have a chance to give back and educate about transplantation.
Since I received my new kidney, my life has been restored; and I feel that I’ve had a second chance at life.
I chose to donate to a man I never met because Jesus didn’t just die for and sacrifice himself for those in his inner circle. He died for everyone; even those who don’t know him.
Transplanted organs give you a second lease on life and allow you to breath without the constant thought of how your illness will prevent you from enjoying your time.
I’ve always been registered as an organ donor but I never dreamed that I would be on the receiving end.
I fought hard, but everyday the fight became harder, until I received a referral for a transplant evaluation.
