Forever grateful

This time last year in 2018, I was on CAPD dialysis. It was very tough on my whole family. My wife was the sole support for us and my daughter was dealing with life while watching her daddy permanently unwell.

One morning at 3am, the hospital phoned and offered me a kidney transplant. I leapt at the chance and had the operation. Within a week, I was home convalescing.

It was a new lease on life, a chance to live life to the full. Unshackled from the weight of ill health, my new life gave me time for playing and laughing with my daughter, walking in the countryside with my beautiful wife and our dog.

None of this would be possible without the selfless act of kindness of total strangers to consider others while grieving over their own loved one's death. This family without thought for themselves has given me the greatest gift imaginable to my family.
