I am Interested in Transplant Friends because...
My therapist thought it would be helpful to talk to people who know what it is like to experience the transplant procedure, make it a little less scarey.
Which Transplant Center has or will perform your life saving surgery?
The University Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Share how your transplant experience changed your life?
I find it hard to believe that there is very little support for people going through the transplant procedure and even less places you can go talk to people going through the same thing unless you go to the clinics every 3-4 months.
