Today is Thanksgiving, a day we set aside to reflect on the things in our life for which we are thankful.  Bountiful food, family and friends are often part of this tradition that kicks off the winter holiday season.

This being the day to share gratitude, I’d like to say thank you for your part in the important work of saving lives through donation and transplantation.  Every day I am humbled and honored to work with such amazing people – donor family members, transplant recipients and candidates, colleagues and community members united in a common mission.

I hope there is peace on your journey and the comfort and support of family and friends.  May you be filled with hope, pride and gratitude as you remember your loved one, celebrate the gift of life and make a difference in the lives of others.  You’ve certainly made a difference in my life.  Happy Thanksgiving.
