Celebrating Organ Transplant Longevity

Organ Transplants with 25 Years or More Survival of the Transplanted Organ



A Message from The Quarter Century Club President, George E. Franklin, III

Hi there! We are just a fun group of folk that have had their organ transplant for 25 years...or more! Just forming in February '04, as of May, '06, we have 54 members, the youngest is 25 years out, and the oldest is 42 years out! FORTY TWO! Many of us are planning to meet again at the Transplant Olympics in Kentucky, in 2006!....

Update: AND WE DID, as evidenced by the picture below! We had a GREAT time on our first sponsored Dinner Dance Cruise!! Almost 100 people from many different Games Teams, and Donor Family Members were on board with us as well! We are ALREADY planning the next one for the Games in Pittsburg, in 2008!

UPDATE!!!! Our second cruise was a resounding success. We had 248 people on board, including 12 members of a media team from Bristol Meyers Squibb, who used our club cruise as part of a documentary for their company. Twenty one members wore the club jersey at the games, and we found several new members, one of which is a 44 year kidney transplant survivor. He is the one in the back row wearing the cowboy hat.

Madison, Wisconsin has been selected as the location for the 2010 games. Hope to see you there.
