October 2023 Living Organ Donor Anniversaries!
« on: October 01, 2023, 07:40:43 AM »
We remember so much this month, as we do every month. So many stories of hope, love, sacrifice, and care. We donors do our best on behalf of another, hoping for the best. Family and friends are generally supportive, recipients generally do well, as do donors. We celebrate the urge to help. We recognize the memories are not all joyful. our heartfelt best wishes for heart’s ease to all suffering due to a loss remembered more poignantly this month. Take good care.

As I compiled this month’s remembrances, I noted that there are wedding anniversaries and birthdays mentioned in what folks have offered to be included in our anniversary calendar. Happy birthday, Tracey! We hope you and your dad, Bruce, are both well! Christa, is Maddox 10 now? We hope so, and that you’re both well! Happy wedding anniversary, Diane and Marvin! We hope all’s well for you both, too!

Do take care, Leslie, Barb, and Rebecca. It’s so hard to be reminded of when a hoped for outcome didn’t happen. We hope you’re held in beloved, loving arms when needed.

Happy anniversaries! Add yours at https://livingdonorsonline.org/donor-experiences/donation-anniversaries/
