I know I am a hard worker. I would rather pitch in and help my friends and family than ask for help. But it has finally gotten to that point in my life where I do need help from my friends and family… even friends of my friends and friends of my family.
The summer of 1996 was the year my younger brothers were born and my stepdad was in the hospital dealing with cancer. At the beginning of the year they thought I just had a slight cold, so I just went on with my life. I was biking to and from Chandler Sports Camp and then going away to overnight camp YMCA Camp Echo. At the end of the summer, I had dropped about 20 pounds. I was eating everything in sight and constantly going to the bathroom.

I received a letter from my Insurance company stating they have approved me for my transplant surgery!! It’s getting closer and closer to actually happening.

I have reached my goal weight! The transplant team met last Tuesday to discuss my case. I am just waiting to hear back from them on when I will be put as active on the Transplant List. Ahhhhhhh so exciting and nerve wracking.

I love love love you Jessica! Hold on strong and we will get you to where you need to be to get over this final stretch. Love the dedication you’ve made to yourself and your health over the years. It’s been a journey but one that inspires me to be strong willed, always be able to show Love and laughter to those around me despite my circumstances. Keep surviving my friend, there’s relief for you on the other end of all of this. I love you dearly. -Ariel
