April is almost over and I have more to share with you about organ donation. First, I finally sent our first non-anonymous letter to one of our recipient families. I also included pictures of Abby for the first time. I was still unsure what to say, but we think of the families all the time and hope they know that even though we are not on a personal basis yet, that they hold a special place in our hearts (and always will).
I also want to send out a bit of information for any of you that might be in KC about an upcoming concert fundraiser. MerleJam will be Friday, May 7th at 7 pm and 8th at 5 pm at Knuckleheads Saloon in Kansas City. All proceeds from the concert will be donated to St. Luke's to provide assistance to pre and post-op heart transplant patients. We had the pleasure of meeting Merle and hearing him speak about his heart transplant and he is a wonderful guy. Drop by if you get a chance.
