Jennifer Pichelman has battled cancer — twice. But her attitude toward it is positive. "It was not a curse," she writes. "It made me look at life with such a fresh perspective."
As odd as it may seem, there have been plenty of times over the past 20+ years that I have said having cancer was a blessing. Did I want cancer? Absolutely not; however, I realized I had two choices. I could either be miserable and angry about it the rest of my life, or I could look at it in a ...

Every day, an average of 79 people receive organ transplants. However, an average of 22 people die each day waiting for transplants that can't take place because of the shortage of donated organs. It is estimated that nearly 30,000 Americans began new lives in 2015 thanks to organ transplants.

““You do it because it’s not out of the boundaries of normalcy,” Diane Brockington said about the decision to donate [a kidney to her friend, now husband, football player John Brockington] . “Any of us who do it are surprised at the joy we take in it and the sense of purpose it gives you. You can always look back and say ‘I did that.’ I benefited from having my friend better, and, two years later, he proposed."” 
Fifteen years ago, John Brockington's life was saved by a kidney donation from a friend.

Help us spread the word about organ donation and sharing the gift of life! In honor of National Donate Life Month and the more than 2,200 people in Wisconsin waiting for an organ, we put orange dots at our hospitals and are asking people to write comments about why they said “yes” to becoming a donor. Emergency Preparedness Coordinator Lisa Hass-Peters, RN, wrote she donated stem cells to save a stranger’s life to honor the donor who saved her husband’s life. Nephrologist Kevin Regner, MD, MS, wrote about the number of people who are waiting on the kidney transplant list. Why did you say, “yes” to being an organ, tissue and eye donor?
