Share whatever information you want us to know about you

Received my transplant at 65 years old. I've been following my doctors recommendations and suggestions. So far so good. Was hesitant about getting a transplant because I thought I'd be a burden and my quality of life would not be worthwhile. My docs told me it was a 'no brainer' choice so I decided to give life another chance...when I was drowning someone threw me a life preserver - I could grab it or die. I chose to live a while longer.
