Share how your transplant experience changed your life?

I owe my life to this transplant and to those who encouraged me on the journey. Every day of my life is evidence of the miracle I experienced and is also an opportunity to share the wealth provided by a second chance. I have a new appreciation of organ donors, of my own resiliency and of transplant surgeons.
