So 2016 was all about me...Liz this, Liz that...this taught me a lot about myself. Mostly that I have a lot to give back.
I started to look around and see what I was inspired by and how I could give back...because I believe if it doesn't inspire you then you will give up on it along the way.
So this has been a year that I have been reminded by my BESTEST friend of how much you can lose and still give back.
You see, my best friend lost her youngest daughter to heart complications (Meagan had been the recipient of a heart transplant when she was younger)but during this most difficult time my friend managed to be the least selfish person I know and allow her daughters organs to be donated to other people waiting for life. I can not imagine this was easy, but she knew first hand the joy it can bring another family that have run out of options.(Meagan was able to help 8 other people).
So I will be racing 2017 season for Donate Life...they are an organization that educates and gets the message out about how important and easy it is to donate. I hope that you all will contribute what you can but more importantly register to donate and let your family know your decision.
