Karen Needs Our Help!

Karen Hope’s life was recently thrown into upheaval when she was hospitalized with cardiomyopathy. She has been diagnosed with end stage heart failure, and a heart transplant is her only hope for survival. Karen’s surgeon hopes to find the perfect match for her soon, but she needs our help. The cost of a transplant can be overwhelming.

It's been one year since my transplant, so hard to believe! I want to thank everyone for their love and prayers, and the support I have received through this entire process.

I gradually came back to full-time work last Fall. I still work, in part, from home. but it was great to be "mask-free" on Easter Sunday!

God bless all of you! And as always, please pray for my donor and family.

Karen wants everyone to know how well she's doing! She was able to attend the concert -- this is huge! When we first planned it, we thought we might try to stream to her hospital room. She sure has surprised us all with her amazing progress! She is working from home, she attends Mass, continues to go to staff meetings, and is able to spend more time on her feet. Her heart biopsies have all been good; her body is accepting the heart. We are so happy to hear such good news and can't wait to have her back on the piano on Sundays!
