Stories of HopeLiver patients
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.
From where I felt months ago to how I feel today is a 100% turn around.
Not a day goes by that I don’t think of the person who unselfishly made the decision to be an organ donor.
We will forever be grateful for the sacrifice that was made by your family to give us our father back.
I am very thankful each day.
Before you are lucky to receive an organ you are really sick and your quality of life is greatly diminished
I am forever grateful for my brother and my transplant team!
I hope that our story inspires donors and gives hope to people needing a transplant.
Today, I am doing amazingly well. My donor liver feels like I have a new engine inside me and I am forever grateful.
Our son was able to save the lives of four people and help with research and education. In knowing that our son lives on has given us a peace that I do not believe we would have been able to obtain.
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.
