Hello all! I have been in a slump when thinking about transplant stuff. It is just so overwhelming. I feel like when I was writing “my book”/my life story (link at the top of the blog page for all chapters) I would write like crazy and then take time away from it for awhile then go back to it. That’s how I feel about thinking/doing things for transplant because it is so overwhelming. There are so many logistics that go into it that it makes my head spin. Fundraising is just one part of the puzzle and it’s a big one. Funds raised will help with housing in St. Louis after transplant, house bills in TN while away in St. Louis, food, parking, hotels, hospital bills, medicine copays and much more. There are things that will pop up that we didn’t even think of I’m sure and we just want to be prepared as much as possible. We will have to be dealing with me, my health and recovery and don’t want to worry about the financial part of things. I just want to thank you for all of your support and love over the years.
Here is the link to the new fundraising page www.COTAforShannonM.com!
The best part about it is all of your donations are TAX DEDUCTIBLE so you are able to claim them on your taxes for charitable donation. I know in my previous fundraising endeavors that was a issue so I am happy to say it will no longer be. I am so thankful that I found the COTA (Children’s Organ Transplant Association) family and that they were willing to help me. Please share this blog link and the fundraising link with your friends and family so we can get the word out and start this thing!
I hate asking for help but I have no other option since we aren’t made of money. My sister is the primary volunteer for the COTA fundraising endeavor. Thank you so much for helping me and my family with this sister!!! Love you so much! If you would like to do a fundraiser for me and my lung transplant journey please let me or my sister (firstname.lastname@example.org) know so we can get it planned. Thanks so much!!!
Until next time…
