Here I go again....running this year's ING 5K! or more like slow jogging/walking it! In any event it's way more than I could have done 10 years ago...when just walking up my street made me out of breath! In February of this year I celebrated 10 years post liver transplant..whoohoo! In honor of my donor, donor family, and all those who support me THANK YOU!
Organ and Tissue donation is truly the gift of life:)

Did you know 1 organ and tissue donor can SAVE and IMPROVE the lives of 75 people?
Donate Life Connecticut is dedicated to increasing the number of registered organ and tissue donors through outreach and education. Our organization is Volunteer driven...people that have received an organ/tissue transplant, donor families whose loved ones gave the gift of life, living donors, friends and family. We are all passionate about sharing our stories and raising awareness.
Right here in Connecticut more than 1,250 men, women and children wait for a life-saving transplant...and more than 113,000 Americans wait nationwide. Unfortunately, 18 people will die every day simply because an organ did not come in time. We want to change these statistics. More registered donors means more transplants...MORE LIVES SAVED.
THANK YOU for JOINING OUR TEAM! THANK YOU for supporting our cause!
Together we can raise awareness! Together we can save lives!
