Joseph Helfgot, the son of Holocaust survivors, worked his way from a Lower East Side tenement to create a successful Hollywood research company. But his heart was failing. After months of waiting for a heart transplant, he died during the operation. Hours after his death, his wife Susan was asked a shocking question: would she donate her husband’s face to a total stranger? The stranger was James Maki, the adopted son of parents who spent part of World War II in an internment camp for Japanese Americans. Rebelling against his stern father, a professor, by enlisting to serve in Vietnam, he returned home a broken man, addicted to drugs. One night he fell facedown onto the electrified third rail of a Boston subway track. A young Czech surgeon who was determined to make a better life on the other side of the Iron Curtain was on call when the ambulance brought Maki to the hospital. Although Dr. Bohdan Pomahac gave him little chance of survival, Maki battled back. He was sober and grateful for a second chance, but he became a recluse, a man without a face. His only hope was a controversial face transplant, and Dr. Pomahac made it happen. In The Match, Susan Whitman Helfgot captures decades of drama and history, taking us from Warsaw to Japan, from New York to Hollywood. Through wars and immigration, poverty and persecution, from a medieval cadaver dissection to a stunning seventeen-hour face transplant, she weaves together the story of people forever intertwined—a triumphant legacy of hope.
This picture book was created for young children who are in need of a solid organ transplant. It was developed by two dedicated Social Workers at the University of Michigan Transplant Center to give these children and their families something to put them more at ease with the organ transplant process and to help them understand that they are not alone. The bright and colorful illustrations appeal to a child’s eye. Simple text accompanies each illustration. A direct question (e.g. “Will I have stiches or a scar?”) on one page is answered on the facing page, beneath an original illustration (e.g. “Your doctor will use stitches or a special kind of glue to help your body heal from the surgery. After the stitches come out, you will have a scar. This will always remind you of how brave you were!”). This book is the perfect accompaniment for young children who may need a transplant, as well as for siblings and other family members who have questions and would appreciate some assistance on how to talk about the transplant process.
I truly believe someone can improve his/her own life by improving his/her knowledge. Since i was in medical school and later on continued my training that led me to become a transplant specialist, I found one recurrent problem that impacted medical results : Patient Education. I found over and over patients run into serious medical problems because they did not know enough about their illness. In the transplant field this lack of education can even be life threatening. This is why I wrote this book. This book's aim is to provide you with education and knowledge on the common events, complications, precautions,etc after a kidney transplant. The ultimate goal is to help you succeed after a kidney transplant.This educational material includes five main sections and there is no set order in which you can start.SECTION I: THE BASICS BEFORE KIDNEY TRANSPLANT: Introduction about how the kidneys works and what their main functions are, the usual labs that doctors use to evaluate kidney problems.SECTION II: FIRST 100 DAYS AFTER KIDNEY TRANSPLANT: Day by day explanation following transplant. We concentrate on important events that impact patient and graft’s survival. We provide helpful insights on important topics daily; most often in chronological occurrence.SECTION III: HOT TOPICS IN KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION: A list of more than 100 topics is explained putting emphasis on prevention.SECTION IV: GERIATRIC ISSUES AND THE ROLE OF PALLIATIVE AND HOSPICE CARE: Here we discuss, important considerations for older adults with kidney disease, what happens when a transplant fails and the role of palliative / hospice care.SECTION V: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS AFTER KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION: A list of Q & A that have been carefully selected from staff with several years of experience in the transplant field.SECTION VI: WHAT LIVING KIDNEY DONORS NEED TO KNOW: We discuss important current aspects of kidney living donation and provide important tips to living donors.I hope you enjoy reading this book and that it helps you understand more about how a kidney transplant impacts recipient’s life. My wish is that this book will help you gain the most of this precious gift (transplant).Fidel Barrantes, M.D.
