Teen organ transplant recipients tell their own stories in their own words. Being a teenager is hard enough. But being a teen who's been through an organ transplant is a different kind of challenge. The Nebraska Medical Center asked some of its young transplant patients (and their family members) to tell their own stories in a few words. They describe the emotions of waiting for transplant; the gratitude for their donors and donor families; and of the new life they've been given through the generosity of others. To learn more about organ donation, please visit For information about the internationally known transplant program at The Nebraska Medical Center, visit or call 1-800-401-4444.
