I used to dance to Journey, and REO Speedwagon…and the Bee Gees, but thankfully none of it was captured on video, so no epic fails (like my hair).
How can you “dance” on a journey that includes heart transplants and cancer on the way to graduating college? It can be done. Read about Trenton’s educational journey which has led him to graduating college this weekend. Click here

Hello everyone!! I know I posted this awhile back but unfortunately I can't find my section .... I've had my 2nd kidney transplant in November 2016 and have been taking 1.5mg twice a day of Prograf and my hair is falling out like crazy!! I have been using Nioxin and then Rogaine and its still falling out. I'm at my wit end and can't figure out what else to do? I really don't want to switch different meds because my creatinine level has been so good! I'm also on Cellcept 250mg FOUR times a day. Does being on Cellcept causing hair to fall out too or just Prograf and what else can I do to keep my hair from falling out? I have short hair.

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
e.e. cummings; i carry your heart with me
Today is a bittersweet day. Very emotional. It touches me deep in my soul.
Ten years ago today I was the blessed recipient of a stranger’s heart. A stranger that has become a beautiful friend inside of my body. We have bonded in a way that leaves me at a loss for words.
If I had to explain what today means to me in a single word, I’d have to use the word LOVE.
Certainly LOVE for my donor, who has touched my soul and changed my life forever, and his or her family.
LOVE for my family.
LOVE for my friends.
LOVE for the large group of world class people that worked so valiantly to save my life (and continue to help me and watch over me)
Love for this incredible journey and the people that have touched me with their love.
And, most importantly, the Love of God. With God, ALL things are possible.
Ten years today …….. an incredible journey filled with LOVE.
I know I’ll smile and I’ll cry today ……. smiles and tears filled with love, and with total gratitude.
Two hearts, believing in just one mind
Beating together till the end of time
You know we’re two hearts believing in just one mind
Together forever till the end of time
~ Phil Collins; Two Hearts
