Health knowledge made personal
I am an eternally gratefull heart transplant recipient . Because of this experience I have dedicated the rest of my life to increasing the supply of transplantable organs. We must put an end to the unnecessary misery and dying. I have a website, OrOrgan Transplant Patients, Families and Friends at http://tinyurl.com/225cfh. Each new member means an added opportunity to convince more people to become organ donors. I am 70 years old and live with my wife Robin in Jacksonville, Florida. In previous lives I was a broadcast journalist, communications director for a Minnesota Governor and, for 25 years, served as an international communications consultant. I have three children, six grandchildren and three great grandchildren all of which live in Minnesota. I travel there to see them as often as I can. I do not know the identity of my donor but he and his family have my undying gratittude.
