My husband Ted had his single lung transplant in 2007 and it changed our lives forever. We celebrated our 40th anniversary, Ted had his 65th birthday, and our sons, Jeff and Matt, have a father. We feel very fortunate to join other transplant families during Operation Popcorn to say thank you to the medical staff who are so important to organ donation and transplant.

Transplantation has been described by transplant recipients and families as a "marathon" rather than a sprint. From the time your loved one is identified as a potential transplant recipient to after the transplant you will experience a roller coaster of issues and emotions.
