Jonathan & Jaime Roy
On October 11th we will be runnning in the NU Hartford Marathon as a part of the Donate Life Connecticut Team. We will be running in memory of Jaime's mother, Barbara Lazarus, who passed away while waiting on the kidney transplant list.
There is not a day that goes by that we don’t think about her, miss her, and just wish that we could talk or tell her how much we love her one last time. But the reality of the matter is that we can’t. Instead, we hold on to the hope that the hardships that Barbara faced, and the tragedy that all of the people who loved her have suffered, will not be in vein.
Barbara will never stop inspiring all of us to follow her footsteps by turning our difficult circumstances into a collective effort to raise money, education and awareness of organ and tissue donation.
Barbara always used to tell Jaime that she was her reason for continuing the strenuous fight for her life, so now it is our turn to tell all of you that she is our reason for continuing, and we will never give up on her behalf. Our ultimate goal = increasing the CT registry that our neighbors and friends do not have to suffer the loss of a loved one as they sit on a list.
With that being said, we truly hope that you will consider joining our efforts by making a donation. Please know that every little bit counts and makes a world of a difference to us, our family, and the thousands of people that are currently waiting for the amazing gift of life!
Thank you very much for taking the time to read this and for your continued support. And as Barbara always said, we hope that you all never stop enjoying life.
