Give Heart Campaign

Hello! It's that time of year again! Time for our annual Give Heart campaign! For those not familiar or those that need a reminder.... On March 11th, 2009 our son David was given the gift of Heart Transplant and we were able to enjoy 9 more months with him before he joined Jesus. Even though he was unable to celebrate his 1st transplant anniversary or the anniversaries following, we made the decision to honor that special day every year. David waited for a new heart for over 65 days, and each of those days was spent in the ICU of Stanford Hospital. While waiting for a heart, every day he received piles and piles of mail from people all over the world. People that just wanted to support him and let him know they were praying for him and loving on him. In honor of David and all those waiting for transplant, each year on the anniversary of David's transplant we collect cards, notes of encouragement, gifts, and whatever else people may want to send to the patients of Stanford Hospital that are awaiting transplant. We call this the "Give Heart" campaign. If you would like to be a part of this wonderful outreach please get me your cards by March 7th, we will deliver them that week.
