Marty, Every Christmas my family makes donations to worthy organizations instead of giving each other a load of crap we don't need!! I couldn't think of anything better this year than to try to help you, Lizzy and the girls with the unbelievable financial challenges you face on this journey to a new heart! Know that we love you guys and are praying for a match ASAP!!!

We have followed your story through my sister Amy and brother-in-law Eric. I'll always remember their wedding and you and your wife dancing up a storm, and the energy you bring to a room. My husband and I recently celebrated our 30th anniversary, and I told my daughter if she needed a gift idea, it would be donations to your fund. She relayed that to guests who she invited to a surprise party for us, and several donated. It seems small compared to what you have gone through. You are in our prayers.
