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.

We had a fantastic fundraiser yesterday. We played singo which is like bingo with song titles. You listen to 30 seconds-1 minute of a song and if you have that song on your singo card you mark it off. You get a singo with 5 in a row like bingo. Winners received gift cards to the restaurant where the event was held. Next up was trivia. That was a lot of fun as well. The winners also won gift cards which were donated. We also had 16 raffle baskets, one of which was custom made cornhole boards. I’d say you had lot of fun things to do yesterday.
We had a great turn out showing lots of love and support. It was greatly appreciated. I had set a goal for myself of $1000. Well that was surpassed twice. We raised just over $3000!!!
The money will go to the specific savings account we have set up for the lung fund to help cover medical costs now and for the future transplant costs.
We are truly humbled by the outpouring of love and support shown to us. Thank you so very much for every donation.
Until next time…
Shannonigans Lung Fund is in full effect! As you know we have started fundraising for future medical costs associated with lung transplant (pre and post). Continue reading
