Faces of Donation

Without the organ donor, there is no story, no hope, no transplant. But when there is an organ donor, life springs from death, sorrow turns to hope and a terrible loss becomes a gift.

-Reprinted from the 2009 UNOS Annual Report

Chet was born with a congenital heart defect. He was an active kid who loved sports, so as his heart disease progressed, it was really difficult for him. A heart transplant allowed him to get back out with other kids and play sports and live an active life. He is now a husband and father. He is grateful to his donor and their family for giving him a chance at life.
