    Very thankful to my two donor families!! People are so giving in such a time of grief that it shows how God is working through them to help us…….so blessed to have a new kidney-pancreas in 1990 and a new heart in 2012!!!!!

    Very nice way to let the world know how Thankful each of us are for those who donate. My kidney transplant just celebrated 20 years with me and I always Thank my Mom for giving me life TWICE!

    ‘Thank you’ is too small a word to express a recipient’s sincerest gratitude! My utmost praise goes to my Creator, my donor, donor family and my biggest supporter and dearest husband and family for standing by me for 8 extra miracle years. Forever grateful and so blessed!

    A huge thank you to my donor family for the chance at more time with my incredible children. Only those who have received can truly understand this incredible gift.

  9. here is a poem that i think expresses what my son who donated his organs would say if he could to his recipients ……………..
    no thanks is needed,my gift was freely given,
    i do not need my body now in heaven.
    i wish you health and happiness in your life, many years without worry or strife.
    my gift to you is my legacy,
    so live your life ,thats enough to thank me.

    in memory of my dear son noel, aged 37 who gave hope to 3 people after he died whilst waiting for a lung transplant.
    forever loved, forever in our hearts x
