About Me: Please use this space to tell the community about you and your unique experience with transplantation:
My transplant does not define who I am, but it has certainly helped to shape me into the person that I am. I have an even deeper appreciation for life, family, and friends. Although my life had great purpose and clarity before I became sick and received my heart, the experience reinforced everything that I believed in - how to live life, how to treat people, how to appreciate everything, and how to always think positively.
