Organ Oracles 13: Dean Arnolds, Transplant Athlete (South African) 3-3 (inleiding in Afrikaans Afrikaans )

Organ Oracles 13: Dean Arnolds, Transplant Athlete (South African) 3-3 (inleiding in Afrikaans Afrikaans )

What’s the greatest hamburger in the world? For a 16-year Dean Arnolds it was a McDonald’s hamburger alone in his hospital room two days after receiving a life-saving transplant. Born with a bladder valve malfunction, Dean was first admitted to the hospital when he was eight months old and while growing up he became accustomed shuttling back and forth between his home, school, and hospitals in Port Elizabeth, South Africa while his four brothers and sisters and parents watched in bewilderment.  Still he dreamed of being a cricketer and he would get his chance soon after enjoying the best hamburger of his life.

Organ Oracles, Steve Donaldson, Transplant Athlete, Episode 09

As a junior cyclist, Steve beat Robert Millar* who later finished fourth in the Tour de France. But Steve’s dreams were cut short when he developed a heart muscle condition that forced him to give up cycling when he was 20. 30 years and one heart transplant later, Steve returned for the hardest ride of his life; a 15-second spin on a stationary bicycle at the hospital.  Becoming a champion was never easier.

Organ Oracles 08: Tamaryn Stevens, Transplant Athlete (Australia) 3-3

Organ Oracles 08: Tamaryn Stevens, Transplant Athlete (Australia)

Everything was peachy living in the season town of Ocean Grove, Victoria, Australia near to Melbourne for a young Tamaryn Stevens but spotted with enough puff to raise a fuss during gymnastics led to a jaunt to her local doctor. For fun, Tamaryn added regular visits to her doctor and a change of diet as a 10-year old when she began to experience leg cramps and soon gymnastics was replaced by infusions then dialysis. A transplant and a year away from school opened up Tamaryn’s world to transplant camps for kids and a World Championship at the World Transplant Games in cycling.
