Heart & Donor Awareness Project 8
Most people know my story and have watched online updates and facebook posts, youtube videos and blogs on my website www.heartofmark.com
So the 27th of July 2019 is coming around very quickly. This date marks the day I was saved. The day I accepted my gift of life, my new heart.
I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for my donor. I will never be able to repay this person but will I?
I have been an ambassador for Lifeline of Ohio (Donate Life) for 7 years now and have learnt so much about being a donor, receiving a donors organ, meeting people and being able to explain first hand how it all works.
Now I am on the receiving end I know more than I ever thought I'd know, especially as I didn't think I'd still be here now.
With waiting 6 years and going through seizures, strokes, cancer, blood clots, broken rids, broken back, now chronic stage 3 kidney disease, neuropathy, anxiety, depression, fatigue, muscle loss, scars, internal pains, infections, well the list goes on. But suddenly although this will never be the end I have finally felt even better than I ever used to feel before my new heart.
It's time to learn, create followers from the young to the old, be in peoples faces even on the road and when I arrive at schools, businesses and schools. Standing on a stage and inspiring , by telling my story of hope and fight. Never do I ever want to see anyone go through what I went through and am going through.
No more can I sit down and wait, it's time and time to act.
Firstly I am on my way to making my vehicle stand out, catching the eye of passers by. I have already got my website on the sides and rear.
I can take it to shows, events and use it everyday to get the everyday Joe's of the world stand up and realize that staying healthy and checking medical issues can and will save your life.
I am including a few pictures of the car project, next will be personal heartofmark merchandise, moving on to literature that can be given to churches, businesses and schools. I am hoping to have some non profit and businesses alongside me offering their services and guidance.
If you are a business and make a donation I can put your name within this project showing your backing.
I can't do this on my own,that's why I need your help. I have spent 7 years learning about all the illnesses and I am and have met some of the most amazing people. Now it's time for me to give back and make a difference.
If you have any questions please message me or email me.
