If you are looking to be inspired — this is an excerpt from a letter received for Jim:
I’m just like you. I have kids who rely on me, a family who needs me. I have responsibilities and the need to take care of others. I want to provide for those I love, and be there for my kids as they grow into adults.
I’m just like you. The only difference is that I’m not sick right now, and I’m not waiting for a heart transplant – but who knows what the future will bring? I can’t help but think that if it were me, I’d want you to sign up to be a donor. So I’ve signed up. Because I’m just like you.
Good luck Jim. I’m rooting for you.
How awesome is that?? This letter-writer thought about including their name and a picture of their family, but decided upon reflection that the story is about Jim and his family. By remaining anonymous, we think that anyone could be this letter-writer and share these sentiments by becoming a registered organ donor. Do it today. Be a donor. Please – continue to share Jim’s story. We’re making a difference.
