Dear Friends and Family,
We have great news to share with you! This past July, Angelina received the gift of life – a kidney/pancreas transplant at the University Medical Center – Tucson. Angelina was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes when she was 6 years old and has been insulin dependent ever since. Thru out her years of declining health Angelina has maintained a very positive, determined attitude, and love of life. She is now looking forward to returning to work full time and enjoy watching her children grow and experience life.
Angelina would like to encourage all of you to consider becoming an organ donor. Without her donor, Angelina may not have survived much longer. We are all incredibly grateful and humbled by the generous act of her donor’s family.
As you can imagine, Angelina’s strenuous journey has led to staggering medical bills. Already, thousands of dollars of uninsured medical expenses have accumulated and will continue to grow because of the need for follow-up appointments and anti-rejection medications. Even with insurance, the cost of transplantation is overwhelming. Because of this, we must continue to rely on those with giving and caring hearts.
To help ease the burden of these on-going medical expenses, a fundraising campaign in Angelina’s honor has been established with HelpHOPELive (formerly NTAF), a nonprofit organization that has been assisting the transplant community for nearly 30 years. All contributions are tax deductible, are held by HelpHOPELive in the Southwest Kidney/Pancreas Transplant Fund, and are administered by HelpHOPELive for transplant-related expenses only. Please consider making a contribution today.On behalf of Angelina, myself and our entire family, we thank you for your kindness and generosity.
