San Diego is my 4th games
Why do you participate in the Transplant Games?
The Transplant Games for me are a celebration of Life. I think it’s important to celebrate the 2nd chance we have been given, and to show others that post-transplant recipients can live a healthy and active life.
One thing you want others to know about donation.
Donation truly is giving the gift of life to someone who needs it. Many of those in need of organs aren’t able to live full lives because of their condition. Those who give, really are changing someone’s life, and also impacting the lives of the countless others those recipients impact following their transplants.
