7 YEARS!!!!!

Wow! On this day, February 25th, 7 years ago (2004), God gave me the most wonderful gift of all: a miracle; a second chance at life. WOW!!I can't believe it's been 7 years...time flies!!

A special thanks to my donors: my Mom and Jeff (family friend). I know some of you are new to my blog, so I've decided to re-post my "About Me"/Intro posts when i started my blog, that recaps my story. I have been blessed beyond bless and are so excited to see what life has in store for me. I know I have my ups and downs (getting sick), but I always seem to bounce back and jump right back into my normal, daily (sometimes stressful, but wonderful) life. I'm getting closer and closer to pursuing my career dreams!

I've had a lot of close friends pass away recently, some that are really sick (post and pre-transplant) and some waiting for their 2nd chance as well. I am praying for these people every day and for God to touch their life in an amazing way. I'm sure most, if not all, of my followers are organ donors (those that can be-medical-wise)...but if you aren't...i strongly encourage you to be one. It's a wonderful gift that you can give to someone else.

We've had exciting news in the CF world as well, with the VX-770 drug getting astounding results. We are looking forward to it being approved by the FDA and get on the market, so it can start saving lives as well. We are definitely making Great Strides in the world of CF!! And i really encourage you to be a part of that.

I'm ecstatic to be celebrating a special anniversary today! God is good; and a special thanks to all my family, friends, and medical team members that have cared for me pre-transplant and now post-transplant..for allowing me to live my dreams and pursue my goals, for taking such great care of me, and for being a wonderful support system!! Thank you!
