Many of you remember when I had posted about my health problems. My family for the last two years have really been on me because my heart failure. They would throw a fit if I went into the woods alone. I know there intensions were good but it would bring me down somewhat. My ejection fraction in my heart was below 10 and I was going to die without a transplant. I went to the doctor on Jan.29 of this year and they put me in the hospital. They installed a pump on me and told me that I could not leave the hospital till I got a transplant. So many prayers went out for me and the All Mighty God heard them. On January the 30th. My daughter and my mothers birthday, I received that heart. An hour after the surgery I was on my feet. Thank the Lord for the donor. Its been almost 5 months now and I feel great. A lot of Meds and Exercising but doing well. Im back at work and doing the best I can to get back to the old me. Please everyone consider being a donor. You could mean life or death to someone.

When I renewed my driver license last year, I had it changed to being a donor. Had never really given it any though until seeing the difference it made for someone.

For the almost 30 years I lived in NC I had Donor designated on my NC Driver's License. But when I moved to VA for family reasons in 2030 I figured none of my 63 year old parts were good replacements. I am in good health, take no meds, have so-so vision in one eye due to injury when I was 13 years old.
Am I wrong about being too old as a donor?

Great news!! God is great!! Posts like these really hit home. I wasn't a donor until 11 years ago when I got with the lady I'm with. She had a living donor kidney transplant 18 years ago and a pancreas transplant 16 years ago. You can't take anything from this world with you. You could save someone's husband, wife, or child. Sometimes multiple people can be saved or have a better life from one donor. BE SOMEONE'S MIRACLE

No! The record is a 95 year old that gave his liver to a 60-something woman. And then things like skin, bone marrow, corneas...it isn't always something like a major organ.

Yes, They can use any organ. Like skin. They use donated skin for burn patients. especially children.
