To: alle transplantierte personen
From: Ineke Lambinon of Switzerland

Schade das Ihr nicht hier in Haute-Nendaz seid, bei die WINTERSPIELE fuer TRANSPLANTIERTE, das Wetter ist wunderschoen und alle Leute sind supernett.

Ihr freuen uns auf alle Kinder die nach der Transplantation gesund sind und jetzt am Nicolas Cup mitmachen !

To: All involved in the Irish Kidney Association
From: Nate Rispin, Irish representative at the Games

I am sitting on the mountainside watching the children take part in the Nicholas Cup, which is in memory of Nicholas Green who was killed by car bandits in Italy. His parents donated his organs which benefitted 7 families.

It is my priviledge to be here representing the people at home. I am looking forward to getting Ireland involved in the next transplant Games in Kobe!
