An Open Letter To My Donor Family /// SACRIFICE
May 10, 2014

“I can never forget someone who gave me so much to remember forever. Each heart beat is filled with gratitude and love!” ~ DAP

Today, May 10, 2014 marks the 7th anniversary of the death of my anonymous donor. The words that follow are for the family that gave everything on that day.

I was unconscious and near death laying in a hospital that tragic day, May 10, 2007, when your son-daughter-brother-sister-husband-wife gave everything. Your loss was tragic and heart breaking and I mourn with you each and every day.

Each and every day, I pray for this person that gave me a happy, loving heart … and ultimately saved my life.

Each and every day, I pray for the family of this magnificent person and hope God is blessing them.

Each and every day, I give thanks to God, to my donor and to my donor family. It is a deep and complete feeling of gratitude that most would never comprehend.

Each and every day, I weep for you, and I grieve with you.

Each and every day, I am in awe of your loved one. To have their heart beating in my chest. It is a privilege and an honor to be the guardian of their heart and their love.

Each and every day I think of you, the family ….. and I hold those thoughts close to my heart for you to hear the beautiful rhythm of life and love.

Each and every day I know that from your tragedy, sprung hope for another family, my own family. And, I am responsible for passing along that hope to others, each and every day.

Thank you so much for giving me the ultimate gift … you gave me life!

May God Bless you always.

Love always, DAP
