“It sounds so cliché, but organ donation has given me a second chance at life. I was being kept alive with an artificial heart and was on dialysis and then with the most selfless gifts, I was saved with a new heart and kidney.
Because of organ donation I could bond with and love my son who was a newborn at the time. Now I get to watch him grow up too and not miss a thing! This also means I’ve been given the chance to share my life with my older children and my wife as well.
Being an organ recipient and meeting my donor family has taught me what it truly means to be generous in life. Each day I am grateful to my donor, Steve, and his family.”
