Transplant Trot - London

The Transplant Trot was in London today to support Canadian Transplant Association (CTA). We walked or ran 5km in support of organ and tissue donation. Members from the Life Donation Awareness Association were a part of the event. It was a fantastic day! We wore our own t-shirts with our logo. CTA hosts the transplant games and raises awareness for organ and tissue donation.

Organ Recipients

This is Ryley, a sweet 5-year-old that had a heart transplant at 7months old. She was a part of the Trot with her Mom, Joanna and brother Landon. It was a pleasure to meet this family!

  1. Hi Andrea,

    I just found your blog today. I watched the news video of your story and just cried. My husband had a heart transplant almost 2 and a half years ago. Your story brought many of the emotions from that time right to the surface again. I am glad you are doing well. It's always such a boost to find out about others who are doing well. Thanks for sharing.
