All tagged Gift of Life


Becoming a living kidney donor really made me who I am. I got to become me. I felt that I found this path for a reason and looking back, I would never trade the experience for anything. I even went on to advocate for awareness, so others can learn what it is like to be a living donor. So in a way, I continue to donate through others by helping them prepare.


I can’t articulate just how much of a blessing being a donor has been for me. My life has changed in so many ways. I quickly found a love for advocating! I used my channel to try to help others who were in need of a kidney, find one.


It’s the scariest most wonderful thing I have ever done! It has brought me together with the transplant and donor community. I love talking about it with anyone who will listen! And I have a stronger bond with my mom even though it’s not my kidney that she has.


I decided to donate because my mom deserves a happy and healthy life- one in which she can enjoy her husband, 5 children and 9 grandchildren and continue to run her own business. My mom is the most loving and selfless person so it was an easy decision. Selfishly, I want her to be in my life for as long as possible!


Our lives here on Earth may not be forever but if we can give or add life to someone for days, months and even years, we have succeeded in love and selflessness.
