I had a member contact me and tell me of the wonderful changes in her Type1 brother's life since his transplant and I want to let people know that although transplants aren't perfect they can mean a new life for many. Please consider asking relatives and friends to think about organ donation after death. It could mean the ultimate gift of life to someone, as well as the gift of sight, breath or a new heart, liver or kidneys.
"People are like stained glass windows: They sparkle and shine when the sun's out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is light within."
