THE STORY:

Without the organ donor, there is no story, no hope, no transplant. But when there is an organ donor like my brother Shawn, life springs from death, sorrow turns to hope and a terrible loss becomes a gift.  

Shawn is missed very much by his family. I know how happy and proud he would be to know that he gave the gift of life to others. It's been 9 months now, and I find myself still asking, "What can I do to help more?" So I decided to start a fundraiser in Shawn's memory, for The Gift of Life Family House in Philadelphia, to help current and future donor recipients who will one day need their services and our help.

The Gift of Life Family House serves as a "home away from home" for transplant patients and their families by providing temporary, affordable lodging and supportive services to those who travel to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for transplant-related care. The family's essential needs require private bedroom and facilities for cooking, laundry and recreation.

The Gift of Life Family House also provides an emotional support system through a network including other families at the Family House undergoing the transplant journey. It is a non-profit charitable organization, that enhances the lives of transplant patients and their families.

Your donation goes towards the costs of housing donor recipients and their families, while they await a transplant. This also helps defer their costs as well, making life a little easier on them while they are going through a difficult time as well. It's not the amount that you give that's important, but the thought that is behind it and what is in our heart.
