Vancouver Transplant Trot

Amazing turnout for the Vancouver Transplant Trot this morning, over 840 people. Had an opportunity to do an interview on Global TV to raise awareness for organ donation.

 

Met and saw hundreds of recipients and donor families.  I can see how important this gift of life is.  Everyone is extremely appreciative and supportive.  Please consider being an organ donor today. You may save as many as 8 lives. CanadianTransplant.com  IMG_20160410_100836891

There was a boy there today that is in desperate need of a heart transplant and waiting patiently.

Meeting With Jenny Kwan MP Vancouver East

I had the opportunity to have coffee with Jenny Kwan and talk about organ donation and the concerns.  We went through the goals of the ride and spreading awareness in the this riding and the Chinese community.  My hope is to have her support in reaching out to Asian communities since kidney disease affects Asians more than others, and it is also important for them to know that there are other wonderful options besides waiting.

Gift From Within Article – Living Proof Magazine

Gift From Within Tour – a journey to save lives article made it in The Living Proof Magazine for this year. Because of the kidney and blood donation, my mother is able to live the life she thought she lost about a decade ago when she became weak and ill due to PKD.  Consider becoming an organ donor today.  There are babies, children, youth, adults all waiting for a lifesaving transplant. You may be that hero that changes their lives forever to give them a second time to breath, to see, to live life.

Life in Mom

The new kidney has brought life back to my mother!  We went up to Cypress to snowshoe for her first time.  This is the furthest trip we’ve ever made away from home.  She didn’t want to leave, and could not believe the amount of snow 40 minutes drive away.  Just to think, last year at this time, she was not able to take a more than 4 or 5 steps up the stairs, and today, she’s snowshoeing 4 hours!
