Stories of hope

Dedicated to the memories of organ and tissue donors – may they live on in the laughter of others.

The Gift: Stories from Transplant Australia’s Journey of Hope, is a collection of heartfelt personal stories about the life-changing impact of organ donation. Our vision for this book is that it may bring hope to those on the transplant waiting list, that by reading about the transplant journey of others, those on the waiting list may be inspired by the life they will be able to live post-transplant. The gift is not only an incredible reminder of the second chance at life that organ and tissue donation provides, but a tribute to all organ donors and donor families.

Twenty-three organ recipients share their own very personal stories in The Gift which will help provide comfort and confidence to those waiting to understand there is indeed life after transplantation.
