The new awareness campaign by ESOT – European Society for Organ Transplantation is very relevant to our community as, despite the huge progresses made in the past 30 years in the field of pulmonary hypertension (new treatments, better treatment management, new/improved surgical techniques, etc), lung transplantation still remains an important treatment option for patients who do not respond to optimized medical therapy. Transplant can give thousands of people a renewed chance at life.
Quoting from the website, the campaign is dedicated to shedding light on the unique experiences and challenges faced by individuals who have received a transplant. On the one side, the campaign will consist of educational posts with authoritative information on the transplanted patients’ condition. On the other side, it will tell the story of the new lives of people who received a transplant. Their experience will highlight all the new opportunities open to them, celebrating the “Take 2” of their lives and the difficulties they encounter.
