She has been able to resume the life she had before and enjoys swimming, running and participating in P.E. at school. Amy likes everything about camp, including the skiing, dog sledging, swimming and going to the karaoke discos. When Amy arrived at the airport to come to TACKERS she did not know anybody and was very nervous, but now she has made lots of new friends and believes that TACKERS is a great opportunity for herself and others to talk about their transplants. Amy believes that organ transplantation is very important because it helps to save people’s lives.
