Inge is a good example of the relevance of an organ transplant. She was born with an ill heart. The heart made her sicker and sicker, she could hardly do anything anymore. Thanks to her transplantation, Inge received a new life. Through a rehabilitation program after her transplantation she learned to deal with her new life. Now she can do everything again: study, sports and join her family and friends. She celebrates life!
