Hi, this is Jamie; the one featured in the article. Thank you to all who came out to support us in our torch run for life. I just wanted to add a bit about myself here. Trying to describe life before and after transplantation can be difficult. I mentioned that I could not attend school because I was so physically weak. However, I forgot to say that because of the miracle of transplantation, I was able to return to school and graduate with my class. I also graduated college a few years after. My message here is simple, Transplantation Works, I wouldn't be here today if I hadn't received the "Gife of Life."
