So, you gigantic community of cool friends (co-workers, fellow MBA'ers, mentors, crushes, soccer buddies, and more): Many of you have asked whether anyone is hosting a bash to send me off next week, and some of you have even offered to do the planning. Yea, and thanks! Of course there's a party! But since these last few days are so crowded, I'd really like to have just one event and invite everyone, rather than trying to squeeze in several mini-parties with my disparate groups of friends.
Here's the word: Thursday, January 12, from 5:30 to 8:30 at McCoy's Pub in Saint Louis Park. I'll be there the whole time, and hope you'll each stop by whenever you can for as long as you can. My thanks to Heidi for helping with some of the legwork.
In January 2006 I successfully donated half my liver to my brother, Joe. This blog began in November 2005, when I was just a hopeful donor candidate, and continues today as a vehicle for sharing my experience and building community among past, current, and would-be live organ donors and transplant recipients. Thank you for stopping by. All content on this blog, including images and text unless otherwise cited, is copyright (c) 2005-2007, Becky Waller. All rights reserved.
In 2007 I founded the Greatest Gift Foundation, which provides information and support to living organ donors throughout their transplant experience. I'm in Minneapolis, when I'm not traveling the country meeting with transplant teams. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
