@nkdonahue Wonderful news! There is a different kind of "tie" now with your husband and daughter, and I am sure everyone is celebrating the chance to make a difference, including the transplant team. Will your daughter and husband think about sharing their story with others about the gift of life?

It has meant so much to both my daughter and her Dad – she is so thankful and appreciative of his sacrifice. He definitely feels very good about being able to do such a dramatic thing for her. As my friend said, "You gave her life once, and her father will give her life again."
The transplant clinic invited donors to come together to discuss their experiences and the folks to whom they donated. He found it very powerful. In time, they will most likely share their story in a more public way.
