Life is a gift



received a donor heart from someone else

greatest gift possible

ultimate demonstration

32 years: had a stroke

couldn't walk stairs

had children growing up, was a shadowing person

in 2007

waiting in a shospital for a new hearth

was lucky to get a new one

someone had to die to give me life, didn't have anything to do with her death, has a heart of a woman

her husband decided to donate her organs

his hearth is not connected to nerve brain

his hearth doens't have a clue when he walks up the stairs

normally nerve connection senses when walking up

what am i?

no connection to his hearth

hearth has a reputation of being spiritual

it is symbolic


felt he had the hearth of a woman

started looking for police reports

and found info

he published a book

more information about his book (in Dutch)

was invited to Pauw & Witteman

a day later the husband called, it is you

it was a beautiful experience

for husband it was painfull, had nothing to love anymore, but happy she lived one



the need to promote organ donation

2way street

life flows betwoon people in a symbiotic way

human values need to follow

be human

everyone who is willing to accept and receive must be prepare to give

relatives and friends need to decide

share lives

donor donation

ultimate example of recycling

life is full of surprises

respect for life
