Jim and Marah made the remarkable decision many, many months ago to allow their story to be used as inspiration to improve organ donation registration. To put themselves out there – in the complete and honest way that they do – is beyond brave. We’d hazard a guess that most people wouldn’t consider being this generous when faced with life-threatening issues.
Which is why it is hard to take some of the ignorant commentary that we receive. Why would someone take the time to spread negativity in the face of such inspiration? Do you think these people kick puppies too?
Jim and Marah are walking a tightrope of emotion – ill-informed remarks (mean-spirited or otherwise) are devastating. They are simply not equipped to deal with this kind of behaviour, and nor should they have to be.
Please know that most of the feedback we receive is lovely and supportive, and very much appreciated. But sometimes it only takes one little comment to bring you down.
Jim, Marah – thank you for your generosity; for allowing the world into your unbelievably difficult story. The strength, faith and love that you demonstrate is unparalleled. You are making a difference and it matters. Very much.
