About Me: Please use this space to tell the community about you and your unique experience with transplantation:
My first transplant I had received I was 2 years old. Obviously being this young I have no memory. My second transplant I had received when I was 16 years old in the year of 2006. I had only 4 hours to get to Philadelphia, because they had a cadavers organ waiting for me. I then had my transplant and have been feeling great ever since.
