Is life after transplant what you thought it would be? I had lots of emotional and physical ups and downs—but it was a relief to know that others felt the same.”—Transplant recipient


Ed, transplant recipient and volunteer, with his wife and caregiver

  If you’ve ever felt like others don’t quite understand what you’ve been through or if you’ve experienced changes in your roles, relationships, or physical abilities after transplant, you’re not alone.
