Hello, I just wanted to give an update I'm in my 6th year of my Kidney Transplant, and by God's Grace, my numbers are coming in Excellent. Being a part of has been truly a great experience for me I became an Advocate for this Amazing Fundraiser. I received my Kidney Transplant from Duke Medical University and I'm forever spreading the word about this organization. Whenever I can give Hope to someone who needs to start fundraising I mention Helphopelive. Now 40 years Trusted Medical Fundraising and throughout my Journey, I was blessed to be introduced to the support that I needed. Thank you

It was a year ago today that we received that call from Duke. There was a possible donor match. Today we will celebrate the 1-year anniversary. But through the smiles we have, there is another family somewhere who sees this day completely different. Today, their lives changed as well because they lost someone dear to them. So many emotions now, that it is hard to find the words. There is joy, guilty, thankfulness, and a host of others. This has probably been the toughest and roughest challenge of my life. But each smile and conversation my mom gives makes it all worth it. To the many people near and far that have helped us through deed, conversation (email, text, cards, and prayer) and monetarily, I thank you! Without you, I don't know how we would have come this far.

To my personal family, I thank you for stepping in and at times stepping-up to handle that which I could not. This has been a true team effort. I hope I have given you an idea of what it takes to be a caregiver, and you can plan accordingly. To my Mom, I am PROUD of you for giving it your all and fighting each battle, so that you could consistently move forward. We are all learning from you because this has never happened in our family before. You have dealt with a lot, but you keep moving forward with a smile on your face. To those fighting the rocky road of trying to find a donor for a transplant for any organ, please let this post give you hope and the courage to keep pressing forward and keeping yourself healthy for when your time comes because it will. Finally, to the few who doubted her, and what we are trying to accomplish...well you know. I'll just let her pictures speak to you. To all, remember success is a destiny. Keep your eyes on it and walk towards it, no matter what.
