For me:T: TransplantsR: RecallA: AndN: NameS: SpecialP: PeopleL: LovingA: Another'sN: NeedsT: Thoroughly.This refers not only to the donor and donor family, but also to those people who have helped to make the transplant a lasting success after the surgery. I would not have done as well as I have if I did not have the support of others. This forum is a great reminder too of people coming together to help each other. I am so happy to reach this milestone of ten years and to be able to share it with you. If it had not been for the transplant, I would have died and came close. Thank you for all that you have done to help…See More
