I had the honor of inviting over one of my friends who many years ago I was able to work with her and her family to create her daughter's floragraph on the 2013 Donate Life Rose Parade float. Once again I have the true pleasure of memorializing her daughter by creating several pendants with her ashes. In my profession I watch what families go through after they lose their loved ones. This is just my way of giving back to those who have given so much already. #trulyhumbled #DonateLife #anythingforadonorfamily

Yesterday, I turned 27. To be honest, I’m not usually a birthday person 🤷‍♀️ but this year was especially hard. I had a big plan for 27 year old me and my family but God threw a wrench in those plans 3 short years ago. Old me would have moped around all day, but the new, strong & happier me decided to think about the things I have accomplished by 27: landed a fantastic teaching job, lived in Central America for 2 years, spent 5 years loving the best man in the world & blessed with friends and family that have been there through the highs and lows. I will get where I want to be, and even if it takes a little longer than I originally planned, I’ll smile everyday knowing there’s a reason. Enjoy each day, each month, each year and enjoy the damn cupcake, sister 🎂❤️

One year ago I was still a whole person. A piece of me is forever missing. My emotions truly feel dead, sometimes....it is scary. This video is from one year ago. Malcolm summitting the basement steps (actual video longer, Instagram limits 60 seconds). The way that Malcolm and Michael interacted was one of the absolute joys in my life. It saddens me that Michael won't remember this as well as I do, if at all. Two days after this video was taken we checked into Johns Hopkins PICU. I go over these videos wondering what I should have seen....what did I miss? He cleared his throat....was that it? He had grunted his whole life, though.... In 3 days we will walk in a 5k to support organ donation with @thellf. We will be highly emotional as this is almost exactly 1 year since his death. I want to thank the so many amazing family and friends who have supported us so far. 💙❄ If anyone would still like to donate, I will include the link to Malcolm's donation page in my bio. ❄ #foreverperfect #loveofmylife #RememberingMalcolm #donatelife #childloss #grief #foreverlove #foreverbroken

Give my sight to the man who has never seen a sunrise, a baby's face, or love in the eyes of a woman. Give my heart to a person whose own heart has caused nothing but endless days of pain. Give my blood to the teenager who was pulled from the wreckage of his car, so that he might live to see his grandchildren play. Give my kidneys to one who depends on a machine to exist from week to week. Take my bones, every muscle, every fiber and nerve in my body and find a way to make a crippled child walk. If you must bury something, let it be my faults, my weaknesses, and all prejudice against my fellow man. If, by chance, you wish to remember me, do it with a kind deed or word to someone who needs you. If you do all I have asked, I will live forever. -- Robert N.

You are the author of your life story🦋18mo ago, I was told I’d never recover from the severe rejection that almost claimed my life. I was determined to prove my doctors wrong & I did. Today, I do it all- walk, travel, spend time w family/friends & even began working w children again. Your mind is a powerful thing. If you think you can, you can🧠 . . #takegoodandbad #perspective #southflorida #livinglife #nolimits #lifestory #intestinalfailure #intestines #intestinalhealth #intestinaltransplant #transplantrecipient #selfie #nofilter #noedit #aeriereal #ibd #uc #ulcerativecolitis #donatelife #florida #miamitransplantinstitute #freckles #nomakeup #ostomy #centralline

Started with faded blue/green, then bleach and toning, now it is silver! It is still a little wet, so it will be a little lighter.

23 years ago & ten days before my birthday on September 18, 1995 i was given a second chance at life with a double lung transplant. Transplantation is not a cure but a way to continue living through someone else's selfless giving of themself as an organ donor. My donor whom i never had the opportunity to thank the family personally gave me life. Life to graduate university with two degrees, witness my nieces being born and being a part of their life, enjoying time with family and friends, and having many more opportunities than i could ever have imagined. There have been plenty of bumps, some larger than others, but continually keeping focused on my faith, prayers, doing what is necessary to get through it, and the love received from others kept me fighting and pushing for another day. Ive traded some problems for others and my lungs are not perfect. I have bronchiolitis obliterans and bronchiectasis which has caused a decreased lung function staying steady at 26%. But in my eyes and Gods eyes they are perfect. God is good. I am able to carry on with my life to the fullest thankful that i can breathe. Ive always been told to keep pushing and keep fighting, it may not come easy but hard work and dedication will get you there. One thing i truly enjoy is riding my bike. It's the one place i feel free and know i can go as far as i like with my lungs pushing me through. I will continue cycling as long as my lungs continue to give me life. Im truly blessed to be alive. Thankful for the love and support ive gotten and continue to get. You all have a part in my survival and keep me from giving up. Grateful that my donor became an organ donor and will always be a part of me. Keep pushing, keep fighting, keep faith and continue to fight for the next day. 💚🙏🏽🚴‍♂️🌹 . . . . #lifeisabeautifulride #domane #bontrager #gopro #cyclelife #thankful #whenindoubtpedalitout #keepsmiling #organdonation #beanorgandonor #donatelife #livelifegivelife #cysticfibrosis #sixtyfiveroses #diabetesfighter #doublelungtransplant #transplantlife #23years #beanorgandonor #organdonationsaveslives #justbreathe #neverquit #healthbeme #webe #godogood

[ #becauseofanorgandonor ] “I don't think anything can ever prepare you to hear the words your two-week-old would possibly need a liver transplant. You are attached to your phone. You put every cry, sneeze, and cough under a microscope and praying with all your might that he doesn't get a fever. Your mind is constantly on getting the call, but somehow life keeps going on around you. . Our son received his first liver transplant in the early morning of June 24, 2015. It's hard to describe the feeling of letting your child go down the hall and trust that he is going to come back, alive, smiling, and hopefully less yellow! You imagine this new life with this new liver, but at the same time you know that someone else is going through a tragic scenario in order for your child to have this opportunity.” — From @the_waitinglist guest contributor Brittany Elliser of Central, LA. Her son Briggs received a #livertransplant on June 24, July 1, and July 17, 2015. (Photo courtesy of @bkelliser ) #endthewaitinglist
here are some really poor quality pictures from the best quality night. - being able to get together my family, my donors family, and my loves family in one dinner was something so warm and happy. my donors mother handed to me a ring and braclet of Brittanys. the ring being made of onyx and wired with two gold hearts (of course). and her family proceeding to gift me with a necklace with some of Brittanys ashes in it... it's heavy. it's sad. but it's life. it's so twisted and strange and uncomfortable but it's magical and i'm blessed to still be living it. - thank. you. a million times to everyone who came and for everyone who supports me. i love you all. and sending extra hugs to my transplant buddies who need it. ✨💕💚💙 . . #becauseofanorgandonor #hearttransplant #donatelife #supportsystem #family #love #livelifegivelife

Well that was easy! 👏🏻 Becoming an organ donor has always been at the back of my mind, I mean why wouldn’t you? 🤷🏼‍♀️ The process literally took two minutes!! ✌🏻 Some fancy facts - * 1,400 Australians are currently waitlisted for a transplant * 11,000 are on dialysis, many of whom would benefit from a kidney transplant * Last year 1,695 lives were transformed by 510 deceased and 273 living organ donors and their families - WOW!!! 😍 * One in three Australians are registered, despite the majority (69%) believing that registration is important That’s a whole lot of people who are willing but haven’t got around to it yet!! Takes just two minutes friends... Link in bio 😘 #donatelife #dialysis #kidneybaby
