Receiving the Gift of Life: Stories from Organ Transplant Recipients

Organ transplantation can extend an individual’s life by decades. It can also greatly improve an individual’s quality of life, for example, by eliminating the need for kidney dialysis. At the same time, organ transplantation is expensive and stressful, recipients can experience complications including organ rejection, and few appealing alternatives exist.

The general public and patients being listed for organ transplantation will benefit from reading first-hand, personal accounts of receiving the 'gift of life'.

The NIB Foundation is raising funds to publish a collection of stories from organ transplant recipients, titled "Receiving the Gift of Life." Our goal is to raise $25,000. This amount will go toward the cost of producing the issue along with original cover art, paying the press to make the issue open access, developing a teaching guide for providers and stakeholders, creating a webpage, and systematically disseminating the issue and teaching materials.
