I know I talk sometimes about unique dolls. I am fascinated with them & of course am a kid at heart.
I’ve watched a good number of transplant documentaries by now. In fact, I’ve become a little obsessed with documentaries as whole at points.
I often talk about pragmatism & realism in the face of being critically ill. I know even with my strong will, there’s the potential for post transplant complications beyond my control to intervene & take hold & cut my life short.
This doesn’t mean I go around thinking about death all the time.
(I’m not afraid to talk about it either.)
But I must consider the fact of my mortality now, period. Especially in the wake of what I’m facing.
I really don’t know why this movie didn’t get more acclaim. It was pretty damn awesome. But finding any follow up news took a little digging. Which is a shame. But I’m used to documentaries not getting as much love as feature films.
I have to say I’m quite partial to them, it’s one of my favorite genres of film.
This week is Donate Life Week in Australia (Donate Life Month is April which I will have to make a mental note of for future reference). In honor of this, but also because this cause is so important year-round (across the country & globally), I am highlighting transplant documentaries that show factual & accurate representations of transplant journeys.
