Stories of hope
I named my kidney Grace because, God was the only one who could heal me and his love for me made me think of Grace.
I’m a life-long organ donation advocate because of stories I heard at a college SODA event.
A little over a year after my transplant, I felt like I finally had something more than the words “thank you” to convey, so I wrote and mailed the donor’s family a letter with my condolences and gratitude.
