As a potential transplant recipient, you are at the beginning of an exciting and complex journey. Your destination and goal . . . a return to good health. At the Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute, we are committed to helping you every step of the way - from planning the best treatment option to preparing you for the challenges that lie ahead.
Preparation for a transplant is more than physical. For both the donor and the recipient, emotions can conflict, as fear increases, hope rises and faith fails. At times, the best source of comfort is found in transplant survivors, peers who have been there and know what you are going through.
Over the years, many of our patients have been grateful for their care and shared their stories to provide hope to others. From these stories, we developed Life Stories, a collection of inspiring words to encourage transplant patients and their families through the transplant experience. We hope these stories will inspire you and provide the education you and your loved ones need to make an informed decision about your treatment. The book is available in the Transplant Clinic courtesy of the Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute.
