Special Edition: My Lung Transplant Journey February, 21, 2014 - The Waiting List
FYI - it's not the transplant surgery because if you've been following my story, you should know by now that I'm waiting for the perfect match, and that match needs to come from a deceased person who made the selfless decision to be an organ donor. It's been nine months since I've been listed at the Cleveland Clinic, and my match still has not been found. Geez, I could have carried and birthed a baby during this time! Anyhoo, back to next week.
Starting on Monday, February 24, I will be a guest editor on The Waiting List, which is a storytelling project focused on organ donation. The Waiting List can be found on Facebook, Tumblr, and Instagram (@the_waitinglist) I came across the project by following the story of a brave young girl named Angel who has been waiting for a double lung/bone marrow transplant since July 2013. I will be sharing my transplant journey with photos and writing focusing on the challenges of living with a serious illness while waiting for new lungs, and in turn, a new life. Please join me on this journey by following me here, on Facebook or Instagram @suzib66 or @the_waiting list. Thank you!
