My story: When I was 9 years old I was admitted to the hospital with an enlarged heart and breathing trouble. The doctor quickly discovered that my kidneys were no longer functioning . I was put on dialysis. I was released from the hospital and a few months later was put on the transplant waiting list. I was admitted to the hospital again and had the transplant operation. I am now doing great and am very excited to participate in the Transplant Games.

My message to the world: Tell your family about your decision.
