I am Interested in Transplant Friends because...

I need to see if between all of us we can figure out the best course and recourse of action to take when immune suppressive meds have bad enough side effects that the recipient has no choice but to stop some if not all.

Share how your transplant experience changed your life?

It has given me the chance to produce music, explore science and live my life very close to the fullest.


Share whatever information you want us to know about you

I need to figure out the many questions I am sure many transplant recipients have like: How to deal with doctors that may not believe in your side effects especially because you may look healthy to the common eye. Where can we get help as far as people go to advocate for us. How do you deal with these meds that are causing dementia and other illnesses that seemingly may lead to death...
