Second Chances celebrates the "gift of life" that a donor and donor family give to those of us who have faced death because of end stage organ failure. A firsthand account like Lueders' can help the general public better understand the intense emotional roller coaster of organ and tissue donation for recipients and donor families. In 1999, 6,012 patients on the national organ transplant waiting list died while waiting for a donated organ.

An Important Book Dec 9, 2003
Everyone should read this book. In an eloquent and thoughtful way, the author tells the story of his heart transplant and what it means to him and the donor's family. He also gives helpful advice about the transplant maze. Jeffrey Lueders is a terrific writer whose voice needs to be heard. I recommend it highly. This is the kind of book that the major publishing companies should be jumping on, but all they care about is the latest celebrity fluff.
