Share how your transplant experience changed your life?

I was in a coma on the ventilator with only one part of one lung the size of a quarter that was working and was full of pneumonia. I was filling up with CO2 and my organs were shutting down. I would not have woke up if not for my gift of life.


Share whatever information you want us to know about you

2012 has been the best year ever for me! I graduated with my master's degree to become an organ procurement specialist in which I help take care of organ donors and make sure their organs get to recipients, I celebrated my 5th re-birthday (transplant anniversary), got married to the love of my life, and turned 30! I can't wait to see what is next!!


Share your interests and hobbies

I am learning to play the Ukulele.
