My name is Pat. I am a successful recipient for 41+ years of a kidney transplant from a deceased donor.
I believe the subject of kidney disease and organ donation is topical these days! I recently published a book, "Life Temporarily Interrupted: Her Kidneys Failed; She Didnt Quit." It tells about the lost of my kidneys to an antibiotic, and of the challenges and obstacles that I faced along the way, and of my success over health and having another chance at life.
The book was written as a useful support resource, and to inspire the general reader and it's intended target audience - those living with kidney disease or failure, on dialysis, awaiting a transplant or perhaps, recently having received a transplant from a living or non-living donor.
It is available online in print format at Amazon.com. However, when you purchase through "smile.amazon.com" and chooses to support the Transplant Recipient International Organization (TRIO), a portion of the purchase price would be donated to the aforementioned organization. (This option must be done before placing the order.)
There is so much to tell, it would have taken up too much space to write in a forum., so I was encouraged by family, friends and others to convert my unique story in a book.
