“I thought you might like to know how things are going”

posted in: Letters | 0

Dear Donor:

I am a dad with three kids currently working at a state prison. I’ve been working there for 13 years. Four years ago I was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease, this disease has attacked my family for generations. There are no words that can truly express my feelings for you; it takes a special kind of person to make such a sacrifice. I would like you to know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers every day. I know I will never be able to thank you enough for giving me a second chance at life.

I thought you might like to know how things are going. The doctor says everything is progressing extremely well. I have had no signs of rejection and the kidney is functioning extremely well. It has been about two weeks since the operation at the time I am writing this letter. I would have written sooner, but I wanted to make sure everything was working out so that I could show you what has been accomplished by your decision to donate.

Saying thank you just doesn’t seem like enough when what somebody does is basically save your life. I sincerely hope that life treats you and your family nothing but happiness and prosperity. If there is anything you would like to know about or from me, please don’t hesitate to ask. I just want to say thank you again.
