September 2023 Living Organ Donor Anniversaries
« on: September 05, 2023, 09:09:01 PM »
The wheel of the year turns again, summer fades as the daylight shortens, and classrooms and offices, whether downtown or at home, fill up. Harvest time is ‘round the corner.

Remember with us this wonderful collection of folks who have enduring reasons to take stock every September. Donors and recipients, family, friends, strangers. Add your own: https://livingdonorsonline.org/donor-experiences/donation-anniversaries/

Personally, my imagination pulls me toward Christine, the surgical teams, and the family gathered two days after 9/11. All those in 2001 and since have some complex feelings in September. I started on my path to donation that same day, 9/13/2001, getting my first blood draw at the Brigham, where all this started.

Best wishes all, truly, whatever time has done to your memories of extraordinary altruism. We are thinking of you.
