Our Christmas Miracle

Hi folks, It's Brad......

Jess got the call at 12am on December 12th that they had lungs for her. At 7PM Eastern time on the 13th, Jess was wheeled into the Operating room for her second chance at life. We are very happy and optomistic that everything will go well and she will wake up tomorrow with new beautiful healthy lungs :)

I don't care what your religion is or if you believe in a god. Please have faith and pray to whatever you believe in tonight for Jess.

To the donor/ donor family:

Even though we don't know you, you may have changed our lives forever. You had to make a difficult decision at a very difficult time. Your act of generosity has given a beautiful young lady many more experiences that she will truly cherish forever. THANK YOU for signing up to be a donor and giving Jess the best Christmas present that she will ever receive.

I will update you as soon as I receieve them.

Until Next Time,
