RE: Organ Donors
by Jan Cadero

I became aware of organ donation when my daughter's teenage friend
had some serious heart problem, which would not allow her to
play sports, be active in a lot of fun things that teenage kids
often do. She was in need of a new heart. When she was 24 years
old she received a heart from an accident victim. June 12th of
this year was her 5th year with her new heart. Her friends and
family all joined together to celebrate this incredible girl.
She is very active, has gone on to be a positive role model.
In fact, she was my inspiration when my oldest sister became
ill and needed a kidney transplant. I was so inspired by my daughter's
friend and her courage to fight on and become a happy, healthy
woman, that I could not imagine not even considering becoming
a donor for my sister. The process was a piece of cake. It has
been three years now and my sister is doing very well. I would
encourage everyone to become an organ donor. Who knows, you may
have to be on the receiving end of a transplant someday.
