Please Select Your Transplant - Or Tell Us How Else You Were Touched by Transplantation:
Double Lung
Recipients: In This Space, Feel Free To Write About Those You Are Grateful to for Receiving The Gift Of Life:
I am grateful to everyone involved in my transplant as a whole. My family who stood by my side through it all, the many donations we received to help us fund the transplant, all the thoughts and prayers, and most especially the amazing family that through such and impossible experience made my second chance at life possible. A special thanks to my donor up above. I will do my best to make every day I live worthy of the sacrifice you gave...
Recipient: What Type of Donor Did You Receive your Gift of Life From?
Deceased Donor
Recipient: In This Space Please Tell The Community About Your Transpant Center, Doctors, Transplant Team, Date of Transplant and Any Other Details You'd Like to Share About Your Experience:
My transplant was performed on September 24, 2010 by the amazing team at University Medical Center in Tucson, AZ. The doctors who performed the surgery were Dr. Michael Moulton and Dr. Steven Knoper. They were amazing and so attentive and knowledgable including answering my more than overwhelming barrage of anxiety-ridden questions. Through they're amazing care, i was able to leave the hospital after only a few weeks.
Which Transplant Medication(s) Do You Take?
Prograf,CellCept,Valcyte,Prednisone,Pepcid,VitaminD,VitaminC,Fluconazole
What Do You Do For a Living? What Are Your Passions, Hobbies, Passtimes, Dreams and Goals for the Future?
PreTX I was a network analyst for a utilities company. I also owned a business doing IT work for companies. Fortunately it was one of my hobbies also, so I really loved my work. My passions now include my twin daughters and spending as much time with them now that i can actually run and play alongside them, something we could never do before. I also enjoy shooting guns, though not hunting. I love camping with the family, playing poker, and also love to build and tinker with RC planes, trucks, boats, etc.
About Me: Please use this space to tell the community about you and your unique experience with transplantation:
I was diagnosed @ 6 months with Cystic Fibrosis. I lived a fairly normal life up through high school. I played sports like track and wrestling, and really was not held back much. My first hospital stay was not until I was right around 14 years old. Once I started working my days became longer and treatments were missed more and more often. By about age 21 I was going to the hospital around once a year. These last 6 years were the worst, culminating in my last year I would have to use a wheelchair on and off. I got down to 90 pounds and approx 14% lung function when i went in for my TX. Except for a few hiccups such as a pneumo during one of my bronchs, I have been doing great in my recovery and I am approaching my 6th month post TX. Every day has been a blessing! Especially considering they didn't think I would make it to 18 and celebrated my 34th birthday this year! I am so proud to have so many great examples of fighters out there like you guys to look up to!

What Is Your Relationship Status?

Entertainment: What is Your Favorite Type of Music, Bands, Movies, Art, Books, etc.?
Most of the music I listen to is alot of punk, alternative, and rock to be as general as possible. I enjoy reading more than movies and mostly non fiction, especially the biographies of many of the people I admire.
What is Your Favorite Quote(s)?
"This too shall pass" ;)
"Life's not about the breaths you take but the moments that take your breath away"
