Let me take a moment to thank you. If you are reading this letter, it means that you have taken the time out of your life to share with someone that needs your help. That means that you are honestly a good and caring person.
I would like to introduce myself to you. I am a 39 year old wife and mother of two. I work for the local Sheriff’s office and am a photography student. I enjoy camping during the summers, spending time with my family and friends. I am a cancer survivor: Hodgkin’s Disease.

I am happy to say that I have enjoyed April and National Donate Life Month sharing the word about the importance of organ donation and registration. It has been 6 happy years since my heart transplant, thanks to an anonymous donor that gave the gift of a lifetime.
Another year on the books means it’s time to make the annual trek to the transplant center for a visit with the vampire (blood work), talk with the mechanics (doctors) and have a tune up on the new engine (angiogram).
Though my family is forever grateful for the second chance I have had at life, it doesn’t come cheap. The ever increasing costs of medications and the annual cost of about $30k for an angiogram can put some financial stress on a family. We are grateful to those that have been gracious enough to support our family by making even the smallest of deductions. They help us out by making it financially possible to make my medical trips and in return, Help Hope Live is a 501(c)3 organization, making your donations tax deductible.

It’s that time of year again. I will be traveling back to Los Angeles to have my annual angiogram and check up with my transplant team at Cedars Sinai to make sure that all is well with this wonderful heart that I have borrowed. I always look forward to seeing the doctors and nurses, but there is always a little anxiety about the procedures and results. Crossing my fingers that this report will be as excellent as the last.
