April is National Donate Life Month
How many times have you been caught in the rain without an umbrella? How about a hot day without a bottle of water or a day at the beach without a towel? There are times when we are faced with situations where we need protection and reassurance when encountering challenging times in our life.
Donate Life America uses the umbrella as a whimsical depiction to call to mind how we all have an “opportunity to play the role of the umbrella, or person holding it, for others in need”. In the spring, April showers bring May flowers. This means new growth is on the horizon for a wonderful spring and summer.
I am seeking my umbrella holder who will provide hope, strength and LIFE as a kidney donor. My donor will inspire strength and help me obtain a happy and more importantly a healthy life.
Living Kidney Donors Network (LKDN), a non-profit organization, has been a great help to me. LKDN’s Founder, Harvey Mysel is a 2-time kidney transplant recipient. Harvey has helped hundreds of recipients and donors through the transplant process. If you are interested in learning more about the living donor process, you can email Harvey at harvey@LKDN.org to set up a time to talk to him about any questions you might have.
I wish you a happy National Donation Life Month. Thank you for your efforts in sharing my story with others. Spreading the word and enlightening others about donation, we can take small steps each day towards saving more lives…..including mine.
(You could also provide some info about your health, dialysis, your energy level, something you and your family are doing together or an experience you’ve had at the transplant hospital.)
I am very grateful for the continued support I’m receiving from family members and friends and will continue to keep you up to date on my progress.
Can you suggest another way to let others know about your need? Please share it with us by Clicking Here and we will include in in a future Tuesdays With... update.
If you know someone else in need of a kidney transplant or would like to pass this on to your doctor or a dialysis/transplant social worker please provide him or her with this link:
Until next week, we wish you the best in your journey.
