How many years have you had your Transplant for?

I had my transplant on April 28, 2015 I just had my one year transplant anniversary.

I am Interested in Transplant Friends because...

People that can relate to the transitions and challenges you go through everyday after a transplant and the major changes you have to make in your life to survive.

Which Transplant Center has or will perform your life saving surgery?

University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisconsin thru the William S. Middleton Veterans Memorial Hospital in Madison. The Veterans Administration paid for my transplant and all my medications, took a big burden off my shoulders.

Share how your transplant experience changed your life?

It has made a serious change in my Life and lifestyle as to my abilities of what I can or can't do now and the things that I can't be around anymore. Everything that takes any amount of strength becomes a challenge.

Share whatever information you want us to know about you

Just ask me if you would like to know something. I had a rude awakening after my transplant, I had four transplant patient friends pass away, 3 had lung transplants and 1 awaiting a heart transplant. Reminds you how fragile life can be.

Share your interests and hobbies

Riding motorcycles, however I've had to go to a trike now as I don't have the upper body strength to hold up a motorcycle anymore in 2013 I traded in my 2006 HD FLHT toward a 2013 HD FLHTCUTG.
