    Default Donate life week

    My mum had a double lung transplant on the 18th of July. I am so thankful to the donor and their family for this chance for my mum to live longer.
    I'm not asking people to donate etc just to be aware.
    My mum is still in icu after some complications but is very slowly making progress.

    That's fantastic PinkPopsicle.
    How long was your Mum waiting?
    Can I ask what condition prompted the need for a transplant?

    So happy for your mum. Such a gift!
    I am two months post kidney transplant and I have honestly been given a second chance.
    Donate life is such an apt phrase.
