The following is a letter of support that she received today that she would like to share with everyone…
I understand you may be in LA right now at UCLA Medical Center and we want to let you know that Aaron and the family are in our prayers.
Twelve years to the day, my daughter Delaney was almost 3-years-old and sitting in Packard Hospital at Stanford recovering from her kidney transplant. We know what Aaron is going through is very traumatic not only on him but the whole family and we want to let you know that our prayers are with him and the entire family.
We have started a non-profit called Organ-ize The Planet and are working to get the word out on organ donation. I will try to get something up on my website but wanted to get your permission whenever it is convenient for you.
You sound like an incredible mom with a lot of spirit literally and figuratively and we will say a special prayer for you as well. We know that trying to keep a 4 year old preoccupied while in a hospital environment is nearly impossible, and the small children can get very testy.
Delaney used to flat out tell the doctors (only certain nurses) they stunk and go away and other really nice things, which used to make us chuckle months later.
We organize a walk across the Golden Gate Bridge and last year we dedicated it to Allie Von Zup who had a heart transplant in LA, (I think UCLA) and her brief story is on my web site. Her older sister Missie also needed a heart transplant and both transplants were very successful.
Early next year in April or May we will have another walk across the Golden Gate Bridge and I would like to dedicate it to Aaron. So, we expect Aaron the entire family to join us for our walk that we do in conjunction with the California Transplant Donor Network.
Hang in there …keep the faith and keep doing exactly what you are doing.
Love Mike & Family
