In the meantime I have a hugely fulfilling life and talk of my journey to help others wherever I can.

I survived with sequelae - chronic kidney disease and all four limbs amputated.

BUT I have now become only the tenth hands transplant recipient ever in this country.

Life just gets better and better!
