Angel Cove LogoAngel Cove Donates 10% of Profits to Help Organ Transplant Patients and Recipients

Angel Cove will give a portion of all sales from its online store to help others pay for medical cost and expenses accrued as a result of organ transplantation.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Jun 08, 2009 – MILWAUKEE, WI – Angel Cove announced today that it will donated 10% of all profits from its online organ donation and transplant awareness shop to the UW-Madison Laurie Ferber fund which benefits heart and lung transplant patients at UW Hospital and Clinics by defraying the cost of accommodations, travel and other unexpected expenses.

This fund was established several years ago in honor of a lung transplant recipient to address to special needs of Heart and Lung Transplant recipients and their families. The money donated to this fund has been used in the past to provide a computer with Internet access to patients who are hospitalized, support of cardiopulmonary transplant patient events, and other general needs of our patients and their families including prescription and transplant procedure medical costs. All donations will support the continuing effort to provide funding for the special requests of heart and lung transplant recipients and their families.

“Our donation to the Laurie Ferber Fund will help strengthen the overall community and support needed for those waiting for their life-saving transplant, transplant recipients and the family that never leaves their sides. We are proud to be supporters of the effort to improve organ donation awareness and help those in their time of need. Having an organ transplant is stressful enough without having to worry about the money to pay for such expenses,” said Shannon Steffen, Owner of Angel Cove and Wife of Bilateral Lung Transplant Recipient.

At Angel Cove, customers can view hundreds of organ donation and transplant awareness designs on a variety of products including sweatshirts, men’s clothing, women’s apparel, kid’s gear, mugs, bumper stickers, fashionable totes and so much more.

After her husband received a double-lung (bilateral) transplant in 2004, Shannon founded the Angel Cove Organ Donation Awareness Shop, which provides awareness t-shirts and gifts products for transplant recipients, living organ donors and donor families - giving 100% of the profits to help heart and lung transplant recipients with medical costs. Shannon lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with her wonderful husband and two chocolate Labrador Retrievers.
