Life Stories

Preparation for a transplant is more than physical. It’s also a mental and emotional process, and at the Transplant Institute we’re committed to helping you through every phase.


Both donors and recipients experience conflicting feelings of fear and hope. Often, the best source of comfort comes from transplant survivors who have been there and know what you’re going through.

Over the years, many of our grateful patients have shared their stories to provide hope to others. With their help, we developed Life Stories—a collection of inspiring words to encourage transplant patients and their families. We hope these stories will inspire you and provide you and your loved ones the information you need to make decisions about your treatment.

The book is available in the Transplant Clinic courtesy of the Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute.
