She is kind, thoughtful, loving and extremely generous.  She is the reason I am alive today still pursuing all of my dreams. She is my best friend, my whole world and I don’t know what I’d do without her. She is my mom, and she has spent the last 24  years of her life making sure that I had a fighting chance for mine! She has never given up and has taught me that with  a positive attitude and lots of determination anything is possible! My moms journey began the day I was born. A day that was supposed to be filled with smiles and happiness soon turned to sadness, confusion and fear.  I was born with a fatal disease called Fanconi Anemia, and without a bone marrow transplant I would likely die before the age of ten.  With not a lot of time and numerous odds my parents decided to conceive another child to save my life! One baby, and three attempts later my youngest sister Emily was born. My parents were finally given hope for my survival,  Emily was a perfect match! The day Emily was born was a miracle and made medical history. The delivery room was filled with thirteen doctors. Who had all come to witness what would soon save my life and change the medical field forever,  the first collection of cord and placenta blood. When I was four years old we traveled to Paris, France for my transplant. Three months, many tears and battles later we went back to our home in Southern Indiana.  With the exception of some surgeries, and many doctors visits I had a very normal childhood.  When I was 17 I was diagnosed with kidney failure and needed a kidney transplant. Without hesitation Emily selflessly donated one of her kidneys. I am doing well now, living my dreams knowing that you only have one life to live, and you shouldn’t take it for granite! I am currently living in NYC with Emily and my other sister Audrey. I was blessed, to be born to such an amazing woman, she is my angel! I owe her everything and would like to thank her from the bottom of my heart. Not just for me but for the many others who have benefited from her courage
My beautiful Mama

My beautiful Mama

A mothers love is  unconditional, motivational and it is without a doubt the greatest love of all.  It can make you feel like you are the most important person in the world. …

The day I was born my mom didn’t know if I would live through the night and had no idea what my future would hold.  The day that many mothers regard as the best day of there lives quickly turned into a nightmare for mine.  Soon after, she would find out that she was about to fight the battle of a lifetime. When the doctors told her that I would die, her response was “No she won’t, because I am not going to let her!”  It was with this tremendous strength and determination that my mom proved all the doctors wrong and beat all the odds! She has NEVER stop fighting, never once stopped believing,  and has never stopped loving me!  It is her strength that gives me courage.
She paved the way and changed the medical field forever with the collection of my sisters cord blood. So this Mothers day , on be half of myself and on behalf of all the other lives that have been saved due to her exceptional courage. I’d like to give a very special thank you to the mom who started it all, my mom! I love you Mom-
