River Falls, WI
Connection to donation/transplantation
I received a liver transplant in 1988 at the age of 11 at the University of Minnesota. In 2014, my dad passed away and was able to donate his corneas, so now I’m a donor family as well.
Competitions/Events at the 2022 Transplant Games of America
Swimming, volleyball and track or bowling.
How many Transplant Games have you attended?
Approximately 17 Games.
Why do you participate in the Transplant Games?
The Games are a fun and exciting event to look forward to every other year. It gives me a goal to keep healthy and motivated. I want to show others that transplants work and we can live normal lives.
One thing you want others to know about donation
Without my Donor I would not be here today. He is my hero.
