Transplant Journey

I initially came across this video last year at work, and up until now, I havent been able to find it.

While searching the web I went to Merv's site (, and was browsing his links. I came across the link Transplant Journey and knew instantly that i had found the site that held this precious video.

It isn't a single video anymore but rather, pictures with audio to them, that chronicles what it's like to wait for an organ, getting the call, the surgery, and also it films a mothers heartwrenching decision to take her son off life support and donate her son's organs. It is profound, and will stay with you for a very long time.

If anything, it gives people a better understanding of what organ donation entails. It doesn't begin when you get the call; it begins when you find out that need a transplant to go on with life.

If you have time, I encourage everyone to check out the link: If you click on the pictures the audio sometimes will come up. You can also read the stories.
