A better man

by: 
Dean
I thank the donor every day for giving me this opportunity.

My story starts in the early 70's when I contracted hepatitis which was not treated until 2009. By this time my liver was cirrhotic and needed replacing.

I was transferred from my hometown of Darwin to Adelaide and had a transplant soon after. This has allowed me to see my grandson born and grow closer to my daughters.

I thank the donor every day for giving me this opportunity, for without their gift none of this would have been possible.
