We are surrounded by angels. Good-hearted people helping each other is a blessing. But, when a person donates an organ to prolong life for someone, it's truly amazing. A person can function & extend their life on kidney dialysis, but it takes at least 3-days & 3-hours out of each week. It's very difficult to hold down a job or attend scheduled job training when this medical process has to be part of ones normal workday. Receiving an organ transplant is a remarkable gift. My youngest son has one of my daughter's kidneys. To receive an organ from a coworker is even more gratifying and very special. It says a lot about who we are as a productive member of society giving a person a second chance at leading a normal life.
One is all you need. Save a life!
Captain Harskamp and Jenny Hansel - my prayers for a successful surgery and full recovery are with you.
A heart-warming, uplifting story. Hope all goes well.
god bless him..
A longtime military buddy of mine and a fellow airline pilot, donated one of his kidneys to me about five years ago. Both surgeries went incredible well and we are both fine, as the TV commercial says "just like it never happened". He was back in the left seat of a B-727 a mere six weeks after his surgery and has never looked back or missed a trip since. Thank you my friend!
