I am happily married for over 35 years. We have 3 kids, all married and living in Toronto. Of course I'm looking foward to spoiling our grandchildren. I retired many years ago and when I'm not traveling all over the world I spend a lot of time with my family. The best day of my life was when I found out I can see more or the world and enjoy my kids and even grands.
Donor registration saved my life.
My Sarcoidosis was under control with meds for several years. There were some scaring in my lungs, but I lived a normal life. In 2008 the infections started; I would cough incessantly which drained all my energy. I was losing weight rapidly. I was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis, and listed for transplant. After 7 months on the waiting list and being pushed around in a wheelchair, I got 'the call'. I started a new lease on life the day I received a pair of new lungs; I can continue my adventures and enjoy my family. Thank You Donor Family for making the decision to donate. Please register to be an organ and tissue donor, you can save many lives..
