Yesterday my baby sister turned 21. We celebrated by shopping, eating McNuggets, roller skating, and some college bar karaoke. April is National Donate Life Month, and Haley received the gift of life through a liver transplant in 2010. While we were not able to celebrate the way most do, l am grateful for each day, her doctors at NYP, and her donor family who chose to save the lives of others. As always, I encourage you to register to be a donor at www.registerme.org #donatelife

Who likes to read!? 📚 • When I was super sick before, during & after my double lung transplant, my mom wrote every single day on anything she could find...usually it was paper towels. She saved them all (& other writings) and turned them into a book that she has been working very hard on for 2 years now. It will finally be out on amazon very soon! • She doesn’t want me to share the title just yet but here is a review of the book: “an intensely unique story of trust in the experts and endurance to sustain hope...a crisis managed well by remarkable people who keep their wits about them and rise to their best selves to survive life’s greatest challenges.” 💜
I'm so excited to be part of 500+ living donors who set the World Record for most living donors in one place in Chicago at Cloud Gate "the bean" at Millennium Park. @donatelifeamerica @illinoiskidney #chicago #chicagobean #cloudgate #millenniumpark #GuinnessWorldRecord #livingdonor #kidneydonor #donatelife

. The average waiting time for a donor kidney from a deceased donor is 3 to 5 years. A kidney from a living donor offers patients an alternative to years of dialysis and time on the national transplant waiting list. With living donation, a patient may be able to receive a transplant in 1 year or less. . اردیبهشت با هوای بهشتی و گلهای خوشگل تقریبا در همه جای دنیا زیباست 🌸 توی تقویم برای این ماه در مورد کار کرد کلیه توضیح دادم که کار کلیه چیست؟پالایش خون، حمایت از بافتها و‌استخوانهای سالم و طبیعی نگه داشتن میزان فشار خون! ولی شاید بعد نباشه در مورد اینکه این ماه رو‌ (ماه آوریل )رو‌ ،ماه اهدا زندگی نامگذاری کردن هم بنویسم😉... متاسفانه تو ایران قضیه اهدا عضو جنبه اشتباهی پیدا کرده با این سیستم( خرید و فروش) ولی برای کسی که نارسایی کلیه داره هیچی بهتر از گرفتن کلیه از اهدا کننده زنده نیست. در ایران بالای ۳۰ هزار نفر تحت درمان دیالیز قرار دارن که خیلیاشون به خاطر وضعیت بدنی و جسمانی امکان پیوند از جسد رو ندارن، شاید خیلی ها ندونن که با یک کلیه هم میشه به راحتی زندگی کرد،البته اهدای کلیه به فاکتورهای زیادی ربط داره از جمله داشتن سلامتی کامل، نکشیدن سیگار ، نداشتن فشار خون و....ولی خب بد نیست یکمی هم به فکر هم باشیم ❤️ . پینوشت: چقدر نوشتم!!!😜 . #کلیه #تقویم_سلامت #سال_سگ #اهدای_عضو #اهدای_کلیه #kidney #nationkidneyfoundatin #livingdonor #donatelife #livingdonation #kidneys

Read below about why I’ve opened up 🌟5️⃣🌟 extra slots for tomorrow’s bootcamp... • Last night was amazing. We heard stories of hope and promise for those needing an organ transplant and those needing financial support. See, once someone reaches the point of needing a transplant: kidney, heart, lung, etc., they have typically depleted all of their financial resources—in addition to their health. And the costs continue once transplanted because of all the anti-rejection medications you take FOR. LIFE. • If you are not aware, The Georgia Transplant Foundation is an organization that my father in law was a huge part of (he was a kidney transplant recipient) and now my husband sits in his place on the board of this organization. 😭And wears his dad’s cowboy boots. 😭 And I dread getting dressed up and gabbing my mouth and then I cry the whole time and am so thankful I’m there. [Especially when Bray gets all deep pocket and buys us a staycation night at the Ritz Carlton and bids on trips to Belize and stuff. ☺️😜] • We had the great privilege of Bray’s dad “Grandsir” holding onto that kidney for 23 years. His kidney gave him 23 more years of life:: he saw his two children graduate college, post graduate work, career success, attended both weddings of said children, and held all 9 of his grandchildren (and so much more). • The Georgia Transplant Foundation is a resource of hope and support that helps give the LIFE our family received to others. Just last night as I blubbered my way through my instastories, someone messaged me that has a dear family member in need of a transplant. I can’t WAIT to get her family hooked up here. It’s crazy that not everyone knows about “GTF” as we call it. So, I’m super grateful to be able to spread the message. • In honor of last night, and my late father in law, and the ability to GIVE life and RECEIVE life through donating organs:: I have been given permission to open up 🌟5️⃣🌟 extra slots for tomorrow. While you HAVE BREATH and can MOVE your body... take advantage of the gift of YOUR HEALTH. • Once you register, you will receive all you need to know for tomorrow—it’s not too late! . . . #fasterwaytofatloss #donatelife #transplant

Today is an extremely special day at Robyn's Beautycounter! ❤️TODAY, APRIL 22, Robyn's Beautycounter is honored to be donating 100% of my commissions on all sales on my website (see bio) TODAY ONLY to Donate for Life in remembrance of Brandon Pentz--the cousin of one of my clients, Sarah Pentz Bottini (pictured below with Brandon). Sarah writes: "Brandon Pentz lived every day of his 28 years to the fullest. He did everything 110%, and could often be heard saying: "Go big or go home!" In August 2010, Brandon suffered a traumatic brain injury after an accidental fall. Tragically, after a week of heroic efforts by his doctors, Brandon’s injury was determined to be irreversible. When it became necessary to remove Brandon from life support, his family began considering organ donation. They soon learned that Brandon had already registered to be a donor. This came as no surprise – Brandon was always giving of himself. Three people are alive today who otherwise may not have been were it not for Brandon’s gift of his kidneys and liver. His skin was used to help burn victims. His heart valves were used in replacement surgeries for patients with failing valves. And, finally, his corneas provided the gift of sight to someone. In Brandon style, he "went big" before he "went home." Brandon’s family has continued his legacy of big giving by participating in the annual Donate Life Run/Walk in Southern California, raising more donations than any other donor team last year. Brandon’s parents also have spoken on behalf of Donate Life to inspire others by Brandon’s story and raise awareness about organ and tissue donation. Brandon's spirit of giving lives on through his organ donation, and in those of us who were and continue to be touched by his life. " ❤️Please consider contributing to this cause by ordering your next round of beauty and personal care products this Sunday, April 22.

Side Effects 🤦🏼‍♀️|| transplant medicines cause a bunch of side effects. Prednisone is the one medication that causes probably the most. It causes something called moon 🌙 face. This is when the face becomes round and swollen from the medication. It also causes major emotions; attitude, crying spells, and the occasional lashing out #RageFest . Another side effect is #Hangry , usually prednisone will cause serious hunger and eating 24/7. This will allow for some weight gain. Anxiety and depression can come about as well. Prograf is another medication that has some side effects. These include tremors, thinning of hair, nausea, and other random side effects. Another one is hallucinating from these drugs. I had my fair share of these. For both of these meds, there are long lists of side effects. However, they are life saving drugs that the benefit is much more important that the side effect. I'm so thankful to have these drugs so I can live my life 💜 — Thankfully most of these side effects are only temporary and will revert over time when the medication dosage adjustments become perfect and balanced out. — If you are considering becoming a donor (which I hope you are 😉) please register at your local DMV, or go online for a couple minutes at donatelife.net or organize.org ♻️💚💙 — ❌⭕️❌⭕️ Tiff
