Andrea's Unicorn Tribe
In July 2017, I received the gift of life... I was blessed to receive the gift of a new liver. To say I'm lucky is a HUGE understatement. I couldn't have gotten where I am today without my donor, her family, and my one-of-a-kind, unicorn tribe. Fun fact: A group of unicorns is called a blessing, and a blessing is exactly what I have received.
This past year has brought alot of "medical unicorn" things into our world, including a diagnosis of PTLD (Post Transplant Lymphoproliferative Disorder), aka a Lymphoma you can get post transplant. 3 surgeries and 4 rounds of "baby Chemo" later, I am looking forward to a really boring 2020. My tribe, once again, has been so incredibly supportive!
Everyone has had an impact on my recovery, optimism, and positivity. I am so blessed to be HERE and present and watch my little Odin grow up...every single day is truly a gift. Thankful. Grateful. Blessed.
I will never be able to thank my angel donor in person, but we can honor her memory by signing up to be an organ donor, donating to this cause, and/or participating in the Donor Dash.
Remember to live each day with a positive attitude and loving heart - life is so precious! I can't wait to see you there, and thank you in advance for your support and donation! Much Love!!
