August 2011: Sober Transplant
From the August 2011 Grapevine Magazine
Kidney surgery took her 500 miles from home, but brought her closer to the Fellowship
"God has healed me fully and this summer I will celebrate the fourth anniversary of my kidney transplant."
The benefits from being a sober member of Alcoholics Anonymous for over 25 years are immeasurable, but they are so much greater when you’ve spent over 20 years with the same home group. My home group in AA has become my family and helped me maintain my sobriety as I have lived life on life’s terms. Each of my experiences with marriage, parenthood, divorce, death, disease, and an empty nest, have brought me closer to my AA family. I have leaned on them for support and they have shared their experience, strength, and hope with me. They know me better than my biological family.
