Dearest Donor Family,
I am writing this letter to thank you for you amazing gift to me. I am so sorry for your loss. I can only imagine the difficulty of the decision to donate while in grief for your loved one.
Your generous gift has given me a new life! I feel better than I have in over 15 years. Words can barely express how grateful I am.
I had primary biliary cirrhosis or PBC. I was first diagnosed 10 years ago. They tell me as of yet they have no definitive cause for this disease. It sure came as a shock to me. A month ago I was thinking that my life expectancy was grim. Now I have a new life, thanks to you and your amazing gift.
I call my new liver ‘my lil buddy’ … silly, I know, but it makes me feel so good when I give myself a hug and rub my hands over my liver and say THANK YOU FOR MY LIFE!! I have hopes and dreams again.
My husband and I are so happy. He’s been so worried about me for so long, and it’s so great to see him hopeful again.
Words just don’t seem enough to express how very thankful and humbled I am for this gift!
Forever in your debt!!
