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.

Today at 0700, 4 years ago I received the gift of Life. It would be mid day tomorrow that I would awake and learn that I was breathing on my own. Inside my chest, two pure young lungs were becoming apart of me and my days ahead. No longer hooked to a machine to keep me breathing I would soon be standing on my own. Inside of me I could feel Tammy joining my life energy and I could feel her love. To everyone have a great day and stay safe. I still have much to think about.See More
