Birthday gift

By Tracey

In honour of DonateLife Week I would like to share my story.

In 2004 a week after my 40th birthday, my husband Trevor (on his birthday) donated his kidney to me.

My life started again with increased physical stamina and energy, improved brain function and mood stability. I have had perfect kidney function since then and Trevor has also had perfect kidney function.

He was in hospital for only three days, recovery time six weeks and return to normal kidney function within months. His operation was performed through key-hole surgery.

Donate life!
