I am Interested in Transplant Friends because...

My therapist thought it would be helpful to talk to people who know what it is like to experience the transplant procedure, make it a little less scarey.

Which Transplant Center has or will perform your life saving surgery?

The University Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Share how your transplant experience changed your life?

I find it hard to believe that there is very little support for people going through the transplant procedure and even less places you can go talk to people going through the same thing unless you go to the clinics every 3-4 months.

Share whatever information you want us to know about you

I am a 59 yr old house wife dealing with my condition while helping my daughter raise her two children One boy> 13 yrs old and a 11 moth old baby with Cystic Fibrosis, also live with my common law spouse of 27 yrs. I worked in Home care for the past 19 yrs, which I found very rewarding.

  • Bev,

    Hello and welcome to TransplantFriends. The journey to transplant can be long and difficult, that s a fact. But, what also is a fact is that there are hundreds of people on this site every day that can answer questions, offer support, and simply be there for you. This site is filled with incredible people that have walked this path, laid in the hospital bed and fought the battles needed to survive.

    You have come to the right place. May your wait be a short one.

    Glad you are here ~ Don
