Beats by Social Work

Apr 14 2023 • 1 hr 1 min

Trigger warning: this episode is raw and talks about loss and grief, if you are not in a place to hear that we understand and give you a moment to turn this episode off.

We always say we all got into transplant in one way or another and usually there is a personal story associated with it and we as your hosts are no different. So today’s episode we are we are going to switch things up a little bit. Kristin chats with cohost Tiffany and Alex, former transplant social worker as they share their story of personal experience with transplant and donation. Today’s episode talks about the impact of transplant and donation on the family as they discuss life, love, and loss and resilience. As a disclaimer, they share their stories back and forth, therefore you may experience a bit of whiplash, however it will make sense as you listen. We also want to give you a trigger warning, this episode does talk about death an grief, if you are not in a place to to listen to this we understand and invite you to listen when you are ready.

Alex is a former kidney transplant social worker, now working as a Neuro Oncology Social Work Navigator. Alex is the daughter of a lung transplant recipient, a wife and mother of 2 adorable little boys. And you all know Tiffany, but what you may not know, she is the daughter of an organ donor.

We love hearing from our listeners, and we imagine this episode may elicit some questions/comments so we invite you to connect with us through email at BeatsBySW@gmail.com
