Gift of Life - The Organ Transplant Podcast - Episode 01


Buckle Up for the Gift of Life Podcast: Beating the Odds with a New Heart (and Kidney!)

Ever stared down a life-or-death situation at 22 months old? That’s BJ Odom’s story, and on this first episode of the Gift of Life Podcast, he’s pulling back the curtain.

BJ wasn’t dealt the easiest hand – born with a bad heart, a transplant in 2003, and another kidney transplant in 2015. But this warrior didn’t just survive, he thrived.

This episode gets real: Hear how a chance encounter on the radio led BJ to a life-changing support group – the “Organ Transplant Recipients of Southwest Florida.” That’s where he met Mike Terry, another heart transplant patient who became not just an interviewee on BJ’s radio show, but a heart buddy for life.

Join BJ and Mike as they compare scars (both physical and emotional) and share their remarkable journeys. This ain’t your typical medical podcast – it’s about grit, humor, and the incredible power of second chances.
