Heart Transplants
Currently, there are 4,223 people awaiting heart transplants in the U.S. 123 people in our region are on the waiting list for a life-saving heart transplant.
About the Heart
The life-center of the body, the heart is the hardest working muscle in our bodies, responsible for pumping blood throughout the body. Just like any other muscle, it can be subject to fatigue, especially if it has been weakened by a number of cardiovascular diseases.
When damaged enough, a patient’s only option may be a heart transplant. This usually follows conditions such as coronary artery disease, cardiomyopathy or weakening of the heart muscle.
Donation is key to saving the life of a patient who is waiting for a heart transplant as the severity of the weakened heart is critical. The only option, if no transplant is immediately available, is for the patient to be assisted with a mechanical heart called an LVAD (Left Ventricular Assist Device), which can be surgically implanted to maintain blood pumping until a transplant is available.

My sister Laureen asked Lauren to send her a Donate Life Flag.  It is flying proudly at Flip Flops Bar and Restaurant on the water way in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

When Lauren was sick, my sister Laureen felt so helpless living so far way.  She wanted to be there for us in Boston.  I remember telling her, “you are here with us in our hearts”.

Laureen took it upon herself to bring awareness in organ donation in Florida.  During that time, Laureen held multiple fundraisers for Lauren.  My sister is a go getter, so when she puts her mind to something she will get it done.  I can guarantee you, in the pass couple of years the number of people that have signed up to become organ donors in Florida has risen.

We call Lauren Thibodeau in Fort Lauderdale, Florida our Ambassador for Donate Life.

Donate Life has told me to express their thanks to you for your commitment in help promoting organ donation.

You Go Girl !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lauren was on the radio this morning.


Resized952016041195080142(0)This morning Lauren was on the the famous Bax & O’Brien  radio show.  Rock 102 FM.

Now this will make it her second appearance on the show talking about donate life.  April is National Donate Life Month, last week Lauren was on the TV show Mass Appeal to talk about the importance of becoming an open donor.

Trust me, just because it is National Donate Life Month, Lauren has made it one of her main missions in her new life to promote organ awareness every day.  She is overcoming any and all fears of just doing what she wants to do.

Last night my son took Dean and I to go see Dion. You know Dion, from Dion and the Belmonts. My husband loves oldies and it was a great evening.

Thank’s Mikey for a great night
