Share how your transplant experience changed your life?
I had become very sick over these last several years although never missing any work or getting any infections. It was a miracle that I stayed as functioning as i was. With my new liver I have renewed strength and energy. It's such a wonderful thing to be well again. Thank God for this gift of life!
