One of my beautiful brides Elle received a double lung transplant on July 9, 2007. She is doing great since the operation and we are beyond grateful that she was able to receive her new lungs (a picture of which is included in the second link below) thanks to an organ donor. We would encourage you to take a moment to read this , check out the links below, give a small donation and/or particpate in the walk to benefit the Transplant Foundation. On November 18, 2007, Elle and James (her Fiance) will be participating in the Miracle Walk/Run at the MetroZoo and they welcome you to join their team. This is a 5k event geared to promote organ donation in the community. In addition to the 5k, enjoy breakfast and ice cream, a health fair, music and entertainment. Plus, your registration includes the entrance fee to the zoo, so you can stay and enjoy the day! The proceeds benefit Transplant Foundation and their programs that give back to the transplant community. Your participation and the money you give will directly impact the lives of transplant patients and their loved ones. Money goes to patients who need help paying for things like medication, housing, transportation and utilities.
Below is the link to the team Elle created for the walk. She has put a goal of $1,000 but whether they reach the goal or not any little bit will help! Please pass this to everyone you know and if you are interested in joining their team please go ahead and do so. They are welcoming anyone who wants to join in and walking for this cause.
Please help in anyway you can as this is for a good cause. Elle is a testament to how organ donation and transplants change lives. The Transplant Foundation helps many people in need of transplants and the financial hardships they can encounter as well as medications and services that are not provided by insurances. They helped Elle tremendously and others as well. You never know when you or a loved one may one day need their services, so this is a great way and opportunity to give back. Any questions please contact us. Thank you for taking the time to read this. God bless.
