Leaving the Cottages, Ruth and I were not on the best terms. But she served as a carer and then became a donor. Her first donation, I heard, was rough but like the tough girl she is, she pulled through. I soon became her carer but after her 2nd donation, my best friend passed away.
After all Tommy had been through with Ruth, he moved on to become a carer and then a donor at Kingsfield recovery center, where he was lucky to have me as his carer! When he gets called for his fourth donation, however, we bid adieu, and Tommy completes. I will always miss my temper tantrum throwing best friend.
And that just leaves me, Kathy. I'm 31 years old and I am a carer. I have been one for over 11 years, traveling between centers, and I am darn good at my job. I took a road trip with Ruth and Tommy to see an abandoned boat. We learned that deferrals don't exist, which Tommy was not happy about. I recently received my summons to become a donor - I am looking forward to it.
