Dear Donor Family,
I’m writing to you to both give you my condolences for your loss, and to express my sincere appreciation for the liver I received. This liver has given me a chance to live a normal life again.
I had been on the transplant list for 3 years with end stage liver disease. I was told my liver was shot at 35 and my doctors and I had no idea what caused it. Having been given a possible death sentence was difficult.
As of this writing, I am still in the hospital a week after the transplant and they say I’m doing good.
I cannot thank you and your lost loved one enough for this donation and neither can my family. Your loved one’s donation is the best thing I’ve ever received, and I will cherish it for the rest of my life.
