Before I retired from work , I would take a basket of candy and give it out and tell new people my story! And I always called my son , my donor and thanked him for my life ! A lot of times I give him a gift !
Since retirement, I talk to a coordinator and ask them to thank everyone at the Mayo Phoenix! Still call my son !
