The wonderful transplant community

The more I connect with individuals on the Transplant Journey, the more I discover incredible people doing remarkable things to support one another throughout this journey.

I share my experiences across various social media platforms and within numerous Transplant groups, with the aim of raising awareness and fostering positive ideas for simplifying the transplant process for all involved.

In New South Wales, I reached out to various organisations and individuals dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for everyone on the transplant journey. I was truly overwhelmed by the dedication of countless volunteers and staff who were willing to go above and beyond to assist others.

This collaborative effort led to the creation of the Parliamentary Friendship Group for Organ and Tissue Donation and Transplant Awareness. This group is a diverse mix of individuals, including politicians, board members, employees, and volunteers, each representing a different facet of the transplant journey.

I've had the privilege of meeting with the medical staff who played a crucial role in saving my life and the lives of many others. I've engaged with Members of Parliament from various backgrounds, some of whom were General Practitioners and Physicians before entering politics. I've connected with board members who advocate for both donors and recipients, grateful recipients who understand their good fortune, and donor families who, even in their grief, gave the gift of life.

What unites them all is a shared desire to make this journey better for everyone and an ambition to save more lives.

I've had enlightening conversations with wonderful people from governments, charities, and not-for-profit groups across every state and territory in Australia.

These discussions have shown me that people from cities, towns, and remote communities, at different stages of the Transplant process, all have a common goal - they want the best for others, often putting others' needs before their own.

These incredible individuals provide me with the motivation to continue and inspire me with their selflessness. To each and every person I've met and collaborated with during my relatively short journey, I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude.

I am committed to learning, advocating, and driving improvements across the country, as I work alongside these remarkable individuals to make a meaningful difference.

A massive THANK YOU to all the amazing people doing incredible things! 🙌🌟 #TransplantJourney #Gratitude #MakingADifference
