I am alive today because of an organ donor

Murse

18 months ago I received a liver transplant, after being sick for almost 4 years. I was on the transplant list for one year before recieving my gift of life. A month before I got my liver, I had taken a turn for the worst. I told my wife we had to prepare that I was going to die. We have 2 teenage boys, and I wanted to be strong for them, but I thought I was going to die. One month later I got the call. 18 months later, here I am. I am not 100 percent, but, life is so good. I golfed for the first time in 4 years yesterday....this is a huge story, and I would be happy to answer any and all questions you may have. My purpose in life now is to spread the word of organ donation. Life is so good!!!!

Thank you for reading
