Good luck, Emma.

You wrote that your donor is in America. Is that all you know about him/her? Do you know if he/she was a partial or perfect match for you?

Not only does Southampton have transplant experience with young adults but they have good transplant experience with women named Emma! I can't help but think that's a good sign.

Have they told you what to expect during the transplant and what to bring with you?

Will your family members be with you most of the time?
