In my opinion, the subject of kidney disease and organ donation is topical these days! With 41 years of a successful unrelated donor kidney transplant, I recently published a book. It was written as a useful support resource, and to inspire the general reader and it's intended target audience - those living with kidney disease or failure, on dialysis, awaiting a transplant or perhaps, recently having received a transplant from a living or non-living donor. It's tells about loosing my kidneys to an antibiotic, the challenges and obstacles I faced along the way and of my success over health, and having another chance at life. My story shows that no matter what you are going through, there is someone whose situation is worse and encourages you to NEVER give up.
