On April 24th 2010, the Eastern Union Missionary Baptist Association held it’s 2nd Health Expo for residents of the Greater Columbus Community under the direction of our Nurses Auxiliary. It was a smashing success and a lot of fun. It was extremely refreshing for me (Christopher) to meet several people from different organizations that shared my same level of passion and dedication to their cause and adding these wonderful ladies to our family of community partners was a blessing. Thank you, E.U.M.B.A. and we can't wait for next year!
Today will be an amazing day in central Ohio for organ and tissue donation education and advocacy. Unfortunately, though feeling better, Teresa is not able to join us this evening for the Candlelight Vigil. "Hope, Remembrance and Celebration" and endless thanks to everyone for your prayers, support and love. Please continue to share Teresa's story. We WILL find the blood type 'O' living donor so she can continue to be closer to fine, with us.
Please share Teresa's story and page with your circle of friends. The more the six degrees of our circle of friends expand, the better chance we will have finding the perfect gift for Teresa. Eileen Cooke: “My sister, Teresa Jacott, is 49 years old. She’s a mother, a sister, a daughter, and a friend to many. I am asking for your help: Teresa is in the final stage of kidney failure. She only has one kidney and needs a transplant as soon as possible. Her doctors tell us the only way for her to live is with a donated kidney transplant. Long term dialysis is not an option for her. And with over 80,000 people on the waiting list for a kidney, her best scenario is the possibility of receiving a kidney in 3 to 5 years. That will be too late! Please help us let the world know that Teresa needs a kidney. Because she means the world to me.”

An Austin couple tells how an organ donation saved their life.
It takes a certain type of person to become a living donor. I did it to help save my mother. Some call it brave or exemplary. But, honestly, it was for my mother..it was the least I could do. However, I have read about many anonymous donations where complete strangers give a kidney, part of their liver and/or bone marrow to help save another human being. Those are the BRAVE ones. If you think you have it you to become a Living Donor...please make yourself known. There are countless people waiting for your help. And of course..not everyone has the health or specific courageous quality to be a living donor..so Why Not get your Organ Donor Card...in the event of a TRAGIC ACCIDENT..you could save a few lives!! C'mon...we can't take our bodies with us...at least register to be an organ donor.. www.transplant.org or go to www.kidney.org for more information... thank you... #58 - Most Discussed (Today) - Nonprofits & Activism #13 - Most Viewed (Today) - Nonprofits & Activism - Hong Kong #85 - Top Rated (Today) - Nonprofits & Activism #51 - Most Discussed (Today) - Nonprofits & Activism #10 - Most Viewed (Today) - Nonprofits & Activism - Hong Kong #65 - Most Viewed (This Week) - Nonprofits & Activism - Hong Kong #84 - Top Rated (Today) - Nonprofits & Activism daniel =)
