Organ recipients take special joy in Valentine’s Day

As organ recipients, we transplants always remain aware of the fact that we would not be here today if it weren't for our donor's organ. We are here because somebody else cared and gave us the "Gift of Life".

Valentines Day gives us another opportunity to show our love and thanks to our donors, donor families, our friends and family who gave us their love and support and to the wonderful medical teams who made it all possible.

Happy Valentines Day to all those who gave us our second chance at life
