Thank you does not touch the appreciation for the gift I received. How does one say thank you yet I’m so sorry for your loss in one sentence. Such an unselfish act to be a donor. His gift lives in me and I hold it in awe.
I acquired Hepatits C from a blood transfusion in 1978 before donor blood was tested, and it was pooled together. I lived with it, became a nurse had three children. None of them were infected and I’m married now for 37 yrs. I was dying. My children, grandchildren as well as my husband, were witnessing this at UCSF…Then the gift came…right when my body needed it to survive…How does one say thank you?
I am all gratitude to all family loved ones and the donor for making the gift possible, and I leave the door open, for this gift has given me life in all aspects. He lives on…like a firecracker passing on the energy to the next. Feel free to contact me…in health. In appreciation…
