    Dear Steve and Gregg,
    Congratulations to both of you on the 7 years of your transplant. I am so thrilled to hear that you are both ok I presume?
    Steve,I would love to make a lunch date in honor of our mutual transplantation birthday. I will be a year behind you but still feel that we can celebrate with a healthy salad!
    I wish you and your family continued health, blessings, and a long life full of only good things ahead. I will always appreciate the help you gave me at the very beginning when I did not know where to go and how to proceed in getting a kidney! Give me a buzz to arrange a lunch meeting, k? Sincerely, ERG

    Congratulations, Steve and Gregg. Steve, I hope you will celebrate a 70th transplant anniversary. I am about to celebrate my 2nd kidney transplant anniversary, thanks to my living donor, Anne Ricker. Anne’s husband, Bill Cunningham, sent me your and Harlan Abraham’s book, which I found fascinating. Thanks for all you do for the cause!

    Dear Steve, In 1990 my husband had a liver transplant, surgeon was Dr. Igal Kam. How fortunate for you to have been able to have this man for your kidney transplant. Along with his transplant team, what a wonderful service they all do at UCH for the very ill. Without donors such as your son Gregg, this would not be happening. Wishing you both the very best of health & happiness.

    Sincerely,

    Marlene Nicklos
