My name is Shawn White, and as difficult as it is for me to say, I need your help! After struggling with cardiac antibody mediated rejection for the last four years, I have begun to lose the battle and doctors cannot predict how long I have. My survival is dependent on a heart- kidney transplant. After a yearlong search spanning over 1500 miles and multiple hospital denials I have finally found a hospital that will take a chance and perform the operation. However, the only way for this to happen is for me to relocate across the country. Not only would I need to relocate for up to 6 months but my cost of living would increase by more than 50%.

After becoming a heart transplant recipient at the age of 16, I made a deliberate effort to enjoy and appreciate every day, living my life to the fullest. I say there is no such things as a bad day, just some days are better than others. After graduating from Oklahoma State University with a degree in health science my journey in life has been to help and inspire others. I want to be the catalyst that helps people reach their full potential. I am not satisfied, my work is not complete, and I have not affected enough people yet. Please help me, help change the world. Together we can make a difference.

Shawn, I still think of you every Christmas morning while we open up presents. When you were young, I knew you would be over to see what the boys got before breakfast so you could show them what you got. I always fix extra food for supper knowing that if you didn't like what your mom was cooking, then you would be eating with us. We had dance parties and endless hours of Nintendo. You boys stacked boxes, chairs, and sheets to make tents in the living room. I know there were a bunch of things that you and the boys did that I didn't know about, that I am just finding about, such as climbing on the roof and jumping off..... You were one of my babies! I love you Shawn very much! I am so very very proud of you!!!
