The Transplant Games of America is a multi-sport festival for those who have undergone life-saving transplant surgery. Debbie Morgan, who is the Chair of SoCal Transplant Games, explains what happens at the games and how her life as a liver transplant recipient has been enriched by being a part of them. There are many physical and nonphysical competitions to choose from. More than an athletic event, the Transplant Games of America highlights the critical importance of organ, eye, and tissue donation, while celebrating the lives of donors and recipients. Living donors, recipients, and those who are on dialysis can compete. This year, there will be new nonphysical competitions such as darts and Trivial Pursuit. The games will be held in Houston, TX, on July 11-15, and gold, silver, and bronze medals will be awarded. Debbie says, "You can start a conversation with anyone at the Games."
