To Hell and Back

Hi All,First of all let me congratulate one and all for this wonderful forum. May this tribe grow and bring smiles to those who have successfully fought and won over transplantation challenges, peace to those who are struggling in trying to make their transplantation a success and strength to those where the Almighty has willed it otherwise.I was trying to find a thread where I could read experiences of those who have faced more of 'downs' than 'ups' and still managed to fight back. In my opinion these people would be true inspiration to those who have just taken their first step towards transplantation.Peace and happiness to all. Let Thy Will be!

  • Our site is one of three active creations of  our founder, Hostess Rise (Risa Caron Gans.) She created Transplant Buddies Awareness, a closed Facebook entity and her original web site, Transplant Buddies, which has an extensive archive to reference on many topics and is very inspirational and helpful. It was my pleasure to manage our site to assist her, while she was setting up the facebook page.  Unfortunately  we lost her last year before archives could be combined. I remain dedicated to keep this site active in her honor. I am attempting to complete that task. I will post updates as best I can.

    • Well done KB.

  • Good 

    May god bless you a healthy and happy life ahead 

  • I've not seen a set of stories as you describe.  Not on any forum or blog.  I once sat down and tried to write mine, but I'm no author. 

    Most on these type forums have shared snippits of our journies in response to the many pleas for insight from the newly afflected on their own path of unknowns, fears, and anxieties who are just reaching out for someone who has "been there and done that".  It's in those responses where our stories are told. 

    If you read every post I've made here and elsewhere, the summary of the story is this:  Death was very near.  But God was closer.  With only days or perhaps hours to live, through the miracles of prayer, transplant teams, my donor hero and her family, my family, dozens of people I don't even know, and even my employer I am still above ground.  I never fought back at all.  How does one fight death?  I was just along for ride.  I am blessed beyond measure and I can never repay.  Because of that blessing my children have a father, my wife has a husband, and my Mom has me to care for her in her old age.  The ripples of "my" victory seem endless.  

    • Beautifully said.

      On TransplantBuddies.org there are over 100 stories to read and they are under categories for each organ. Everyone who has been through a transplant struggled with something.
