In August my husband, Paul, and I went to a resort with our three grandchildren. On the afternoon of our last day, we all decided to go for a bike ride. Unfortunately, my bike was much too big for me and I crashed it, severing the ACL, injuring both the PCL & MCL, tearing the Meniscus, and separating the knee cap from the knee putting me on crutches. That’s when I learned about the donor program.
After surgery to replace the ACL and repair the rest of the issues, I had extensive Physical Therapy for three months. Now, I am back to normal, and able to do everything I need and want to do, including golf.
Before this incident, I was unaware of this donor program and am so grateful that it is available.
I am also grateful to the donor family for participating in this program. Thank you, donor family!
