The Coughing Blonde

A blonde just looking to breathe a little easier…

Give the gift of LIFE

on June 12, 2013

Tonight’s blog is dedicated to little Sarah who finally got her new lungs today! Huuuuraaaay!!!

She has a long road ahead of her, but she will be able to breathe a little easier walking down that road now.

This story has been all over the news, I posted a link to an article below:

I can’t wrap my head around why more people aren’t organ donors, however, they are outraged when stories like this come up. In fact, only 45 percent of people in the United States are organ donors…WTF right?!

There are thousands of people awaiting a second chance at life, I truly believe the best and greatest gift you could ever give someone is their second chance. I have come to know some BEYOND amazing people with Cystic Fibrosis who have either received a lung transplant, or who are on the list awaiting one.  It is a bittersweet circumstance that one life lost is another life given, but what one amazing legacy to leave behind being someone’s hero and giving them the gift of life… *LIVE life LOVE life GIVE life*
