Celebrating the Creativity and Generosity of Organ Donation

new plant

Veering off my usual topic for a moment, I’d like to congratulate my husband on the 18th anniversary of his kidney transplant.  It’s been wonderful to have you around all these extra years, Bryan!

Kudos to the creative people who originally envisioned organ tranplantation, then turned it into a reality.

And an extra big helping of gratitude for all those who generously decide to be organ donors.

    That is wonderful … congratulations to both of you! 18 years is tremendous. My father died while waiting for a heart transplant, so this issue is important to me. I’ve signed up to be an organ donor in his memory.

      I’m so sorry about your father, Melissa. I nearly lost my husband a month after our wedding, then we endured a 2+ year wait for his transplant. I never forget the generosity of the (anonymous) donor who saved his life. Your decision to be an organ donor is a wonderful way to honor your father.

    I just read this — and Melissa’s reply. I wish both of you had gotten so lucky, but these really do illustrate how vitally important organ donation is. What a challenge to go through at the beginning of a marriage.

    Coincidentally, I was just reminding my partner that my wishes are to donate any- and everything when the time comes.

      Yes, it’s amazing how much you appreciate every day with your spouse when you almost lose him so early on. Organ donation is so much more important than many people realize. If everyone donated, people wouldn’t have to wait while their health deteriorates or until they die.

      Thanks for being an organ donor!
