Preparing Yourself Spiritually

Spiritual growth and challenges await many transplant candidates and recipients. Some find that life-threatening illness makes them question their faith; others find their faith strengthened through the transplant process. Your second chance at a healthy life may come with the knowledge that another life was lost. Receiving a donor organ may create a sense of spiritual rebirth. This may create a profound change in your beliefs, and spiritual guidance and counseling can help you deal with these issues. Just as every patient has different medical issues, spiritual needs vary as well. Talking to your pastor, your rabbi, or the hospital chaplain may help.
