It’s easy this time of year to get caught up in the holiday hustle and bustle and forget to take a moment to be grateful for what you have. As a two-time heart transplant recipient, when the holidays come around each year, I make a point to reflect on the second and third chance at life that I was given. I can remember many holidays when I didn’t feel well, even spending one holiday season in the hospital, waiting for my second heart transplant. I am now able to spend my holidays enjoying my family and friends and living my life to the fullest, all because two generous people said Yes to becoming organ, eye and tissue donors.
