A Second Chance at Life
For many of us, tomorrow is just another day. We’ll wake up, shower, fix ourselves a nice cup of coffee and start the day. For people who obtain support from the Illinois Transplant Fund, every waking day is a second chance at life – a gift made possible through lifesaving organ transplants they once thought were impossible.
Every day I was connected to a machine…
Before the transplant, my life revolved around dialysis. Every day I was connected to a machine. My four-year-old son was almost entirely under my husband’s care in the evenings. I was not able to take care of my son by myself, much less keep a job or make long-term plans.
