Jim and his amazing family agreed to be the subject of this blog because of their committment to spreading the word about organ donation. We’ve taken a lot of care over the past few months to make our message of hope be about everyone who is on the waiting list for an organ donation, and anyone who may be on it in the future.
But today is about Jim. Jim has been admitted to hospital by his heart surgeon. In order to prevent damage to his other organs, particularly his kidneys, he will be given medication to reduce some of the fluid surrounding his organs. He will be prepared to quite possibly be given an artificial heart. Jim sees this as a positive, and so we ask that you do too!
Today is about Jim. Send your prayers, your good vibes, your best wishes – and the hope for a new heart. Spread the word. Be a donor.
