Recipients: In This Space, Feel Free To Write About Those You Are Grateful to for Receiving The Gift Of Life:
I had my lung transplant in 1994 at MUSC in Charleston, SC. I was the third recipient that year when they started the Lung transplant program. They stopped the program about a year later and I hear that this coming year they are going to restart the program. All I know is my transplant donor was a 13 year old young boy and I am very blessed that his family were gracious enough to help so many people with their amazing donation of their sons' organs. It is truely the most amazing gift a person can give aother human being.

Hello Selma:

I am also a single lung tx.  A right.  Can you tell me why you are so successful with your lung going on 20 years?  I am 58 this year and will hit my 3rd anniversary on April 12th.  

Have you talked to your transplant team about a re-transplant?  You are an inspiration to me.  My goal is to make 20 years on this lung.  I was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis so my native left lung is only producing about 5% compared to 95% by my new lung.   

Drop me a note if you get time.

Sincerely

Ken Carrell

Selma:
I just want to thank you for the gift of the pink ribbon; it means so much to me. Thank you for being my new friend and look forward to getting to know you better. FYI: I had my first kidney transplant in 1972 and back then the life expectancy was 8 years; I had that kidney for over 34 years and recieved my second on 2-14-09 from my hero husband. I have lived with a transplanted kidney for 37 years of my life on 11/6/09. I have been blessed and also gave birth to our fabulous sons. The quarter century club is for members who have had an organ transplant for 25 years or more so you might look there and the president of the club is George Franklin and he might be able to tell you the longest Lung recipient that he know. Thank you again for the ribbon. Bless you and yours and please keep in touch.
Karen
