One month ago…

One month ago I received a call from the United Network for Organ Sharing or UNOS informing me that I was officially on the list for a heart ❤️

I can tell you that I was both extremely excited and extremely terrified all at the same time. I was shaking and crying but I knew it was my only chance at life.

It is so surreal that I received the call 11 days later, had my surgery and I'm home recovering. What a miracle!!!

Organ donation is a beautiful gift!

I decided to start this blog to document and share my heart transplant journey as well as an avenue to update friends and family but I never imagined how many people it might reach and the awareness it would provide. I want to share a very touching email that I received. It honestly made me cry

If I can bring awareness to just one person at a time I'm doing something right.

I hope everyone has a heartfelt day

Each ❤️ Beat Matters
