I am in tears of thankfulness...



I was going to wait to blog about this, but it can't wait. SAIC in Tennessee (where my sister Crystal works) is doing a silent bake auction for me today in their lobby of their building. First of all....35 people signed up for this to donate and/or volunteer their time to bake for this.



This fundraiser will go to medical expenses not covered by my insurances. Originally, I was more scared about the financials of my transplant vs. actually having a transplant. My family and friends have told me not to worry about the financials.....we will find a way.

I plan on doing a large post on this with more pictures. I have that lump in my throat you get when you see someone doing good for someone else. My eyes are fighting back the tears.

Thank you SAIC.

Sometimes its hard to receive help when you're so used to giving it~ I am so happy to hear you have people in your life who obviously love you very much.

Wishing you the very best always~
