Me on my 30th birthday, which happened to be Blue and Green Day

My Story

I was born late at night on April 12, 1994. I was diagnosed with severe heart deformities that could not be fixed with surgery. In the afternoon of April 17, 1994, when I was still four days old, I received a heart transplant thanks to organ donation. I’m surrounded by stories of organ donation on my birthday week, including my own, and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
