I took a walk on the disc golf course today and stopped for a photo by the hole we sponsored.

My Story

Erik Thomas was placed on the heart transplant list after a successful LVAD placement in June 2017 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. In March of 2018, he had a massive stroke. On March 10, 2018, he successfully donated his liver, corneas, and tissues. His skin was used for several breast cancer reconstruction surgeries. He saved 2 patients eyesight. And, saved a 55 year old man with his liver. His kidneys were harvested; however, they weren’t viable. Even though he never received the call for a new heart, he answered several needs for others. It’s been 6 very painful years without him, but I’m happy others received the help they needed because of him. 💚💙
