Share how your transplant experience changed your life?

Of course it changed my life I was insulin free almost immediately. What a relief to not have to worry if I would be in serious danger or die that day.


Share whatever information you want us to know about you

I was a nurse for 25 yrs and had diabetes. I was always treated unfairly at jobs I had due to my condition. When I had my transplant many things changed. I ask lost my husband 6 mo prior to transplant. I now have a loving mini Goldendoodle that’s my life time companion
