A Gift That Helps Transplant Research

Here’s a great opportunity to buy yourself a gift or holiday gifts for others and help transplant research at the same time.

Stories From Her Journey by Liz Maxwell is a well-written little volume filled with wonderful short stories and is just $20 plus S&H with all proceeds going to Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation for liver transplant research at University Health Network.

Liz Maxwell was a liver transplant recipient and a member of a creative writing group. She loved to write about her transplant experience plus other essays on life in general. But Liz passed away in the summer of 2005 and her writing group decided to publish a book of her essays in her memory and donate the proceeds to liver transplant research. I’ve read many of the stories and they are inspiring, especially those about the transforming experience of her transplant and her thoughts about her donor and donor family.

To order or for more info go to Semi-detached Press.
