After 28 years as an insulin dependent diabetic of which 7 years were spent on dialysis at University Hospital in London Ontario, I received the Gift of Life in August 2004. I received a kidney and pancreas transplant. This Gift not only transformed my life but that of my family's as well. Even though my very cherished Gift came from an unknown donor, I hold my donor and my donor family very close to my heart. Not a days has gone by when I haven't thought of them. Wherever they are and whoever they are, I am forever indebted to them. The legacy of their loved one lives on in me.
