How many years have you had your Transplant for?

9...this number made me a little sad. I had my first transplant about another year after i signed up on here. 2nd-almost at that 1 month mark!

I am Interested in Transplant Friends because...

1st-it would be nice to share some of the same experiences 2nd-everything about transplants is hard. Pre-transplant, during transplant, AND post transplant. Sharing definitely helps!!!

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

Both times have been at the University Hospital @ San Antonio, TX

Share how your transplant experience changed your life?

1st-I was able to enjoy my high school senior year because of my transplant 2nd-my quality of life on peritoneal dialysis this time around before transplant was very difficult and although I’m not yet cleared to start working again and what not I already feel the motivation and drive in me. I’m me again thanks to this transplant!
