Your story should be approximately 200 - 500 words long and talk about what donation and transplantation means to you. Keep it simple – less is more! An important thing to keep in mind is that your story is about you or a loved one, not about the medical process of donation and transplantation. Because of its many procedures and medical terms, this subject can be complex. Though sharing every detail may feel natural, it can be overwhelming to others and they may miss the important message of donation. For example, details like the exact number and names of medicines required after transplantation is extremely important to you, but including all of them may detract from the power of your story.
