Tim was transplanted 3 days before our wedding anniversary on July 8, 2016!
He looks incredible. His sense of humor is back, his hearing is improved and he is walking 30-35 minutes a day on the treadmill.
Thank you and may God bless you for your support and prayers.

On July 7, 2016 Tim received his liver transplant! It was five years in the making- but worth every second.
His skin is healing, his muscles are coming back, and best of al, that funny witty, clever and brilliant man I married is back!
Thank you. If you donated a prayer, money, or your time, we are so grateful. God bless you.
Thank you Lori, Cyd, Jacki, Sam, Charlie, Lindsey and Linda. I am more grateful than I could ever say.

Dear Theresa, It was a pleasure to be partners in the Graduation ceremony. There was this especial light that came from you. Now, I understand. The loving hand of God over your head causes you to radiate so much joy. Blessings and prayers for you and your family.

Hi Timothy, We donated $100 after reading your article in Explorer. My hubby, George and I cried while reading it and had to do something. Praying for a miracle for you either by God's divine hand alone or through his working with a transplant. God be with you as you fight this battle. I pray they will begin the transplant process even before the total amount is reached.
