Running because Lilian is Amazing!
A friend of mine from Stanford, Lilian Lam, received a heart transplant from an amazing donor this February and has been killing it in recovery. She was a cardiomyopathy (ARVD) patient living with heart failure - and now because of her donor she gets a second chance at living life, and also running a 5K! In support of Lilian's amazing and unwavering recovery from her heart transplant and in support of her regaining her physical life back I will be running a 10K.
I am teaming up with Donor Network West to raise awareness about the need for organ, eye and tissue donation at the 10th annual Donate Life Run/Walk! This event will celebrate those touched by donation and honor the donors who have given the gift of life.
Funds raised from the Run/Walk help provide education on organ, eye, and tissue donation through community outreach, research, clinical events and our annual Donor Family Ceremonies. Each person touched by Donor Network West’s public education campaigns, who then registers as a donor, has the potential of saving 8 lives through organ donation and improving another 75 lives through tissue donation.
It’s easy to make a difference – just click the button to the right to make a donation. Any amount helps the over 11,000 people waiting for a life-saving transplant in Northern California and Northern Nevada.
I hope you will join me in building a future where all those waiting for a transplant receive their second chance at life.
