1st Birthday

What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.
-Emerson

It gives me great pleasure to announce that today is my husband’s, 1st birthday!! Yes, I said that right! *smile* It was 1 year ago today that Greg underwent a double lung transplant that saved his life. Today, he is working and no one can even tell how sick he once was. Heck, no one can even tell he had such a miracle surgery. It is truly amazing how miracles work and we are truly appreciative of our angels – the donor, the donor’s family, and the staff at the transplant hospital. And, of course, we are grateful beyond words to God – for it is He who had a hand in all of this and has provided Greg with such an outstanding gift.

We ask at this time that you please keep the donor and donor’s family in your thoughts and prayers. Without their sacrifice and unselfish gift, I would have probably been a widow at the tender age of 30. God Bless!

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.
