“I am now doing well and will watch my grandchildren grow”

posted in: Letters | 0

Dear donor family,

I am writing to express my gratitude for the liver transplant I received. I was very ill and the donated liver saved my life. I am a 67 year old wife, mother and grandmother. I am now doing well and will watch my grandchildren grow. My entire family is grateful for this gift. Although my heart is filled with gratitude, words cannot fully express how I feel.

I once again wish to express my gratitude. I have began working in my small garden once again and am able to resume the activities I was unable to enjoy prior to my transplant. Even though this letter is short, it does not diminish the gratitude I feel. I again thank you with all my heart.
