Gylenhaal Fest while I sort about 2 months worth of Kaiser/Medicare/Medi-CAL insurance and SSDI paperwork. Between this and needing things to be clean/sterile all the time, I'm probably responsible for about 1000 acres of deforestation at this point. That's one thing no guidebook about chronic illness teaches - environmental guilt. Sometimes I make compromises like paper plates and bowls because when I was sick and living alone, there would be days when the thought of not having enough energy to cook and clean dishes (so that they don't grow germs in the sink and get me more sick) would actually keep me from eating. (Thankfully right now I'm in a living situation where I have dish/food back-up :) Thanks, fam!) . My nickname in high school was "dirty hippie" because at my core, that's who I am. Nomadic. Easily pleased when basic needs are met. Environmentally conscious and mindful of sustainability. So it used to kill me to make compromises to my values just to keep myself healthy. But I've learned to fogrive myself because without the compromises I've made, my life would not have been sustainable. . I try to make up for it in other ways. Less laudry days. Buying recycled/used goods and clothes. Repurposing my own used stuff. Going paperless in every area I can. Supporting businesses and artists with sustainable environmental practices when I can. Supporting local when I can. But every now and then...like my bi-monthly paperwork sorting days, it's a reminder of how intrusive chronic illness can be in every nook and cranny of the mind, body and spirit. So if you're in a position right now where you're forced to choose between your core ideals and your very existence, you're not alone. I'm with you. Many others are with you. Let the bad days pass (hopefully they're fast). Enjoy the good days (hopefully they last). Remind yourself one more time that you didn't ask to be sick, and keep doing the best you can. #cfawarenessmonth #cysticfibrosis #lungtransplant #organdonation #mentalhealthawareness #sustainability #gopaperless #environmentallyconscious #dirtyhippie

"Spoke some things into the universe and they appeared..." ⚡️🙏🏽🔮⁣ ⁣ Truly a cosmic year.... On my birthday exactly one year ago, I relocated to LA and shook up my entire life. 🚚🌴 I’ve come to realize that everything happens for a reason... Sharing my story used to make me cry, but now it gives me energy. All that I have felt, endured, and overcome since a young age only prepared me for what I am creating now. Truly a blessing to transform this pain into power for so many and to be part of a movement. 🎙🌱🌏 Thank you to everyone who made this past year truly special and memorable. Cheers to 27 years in this beautiful world! ✌🏽⁣ ⁣ 🍦: Birthday Cookie Shake // 100% Plant-Based⁣ 📍: @montysgoodburger // Koreatown⁣ 📸: @rezalyfe13 at Los Angeles, California

I’ve supported one cancer event after another, after another for YEARS. Sometimes it was because I knew the individual & sometimes it was because the individual was family or dear to whomever was family or dear to ME. I support and have always supported everyone else’s causes and reasons because those people are “my people” & there is absolutely NOTHING I will not do, have not done or sacrifice for “my people”. But THIS one? THIS is my cause. THIS is my reason because THIS is MY disease & my family’s albatross. If you are “MY PEOPLE” than show me so and repost/share. . . @pkdfoundation @endpkd.ca @polycystickidneydisease . . #louisiana #armyofone #igotit #onmyown #fullyclothedandkillingit #pkd #whereareyallatnow #nocure #nocuredontcare #organdonation #organdonationawareness #90daydeadline #showyoursupport #spreadtheawareness #kidneydisease #kidneytransplant #chronicillness

Long awaited PD catheter removal day! Feeling sore, but incredibly thankful to have my body back. I can’t really put into words the gratefulness I have towards my PD catheter as it kept me alive this past year, but at the same time; BYEEEEEEE 👋🏻 One step closer to diving into the ocean!

Caralynn is a true hero. A beautiful little girl who touched and help save the lives of so many. Thank you to the bravery & selflessness of her parents for saying yes to organ donation - the guard of honour is a lovely tribute ♥️. Coralynn Sobolik, 22 months, was kissed goodbye by her mother, Meagan Sobolik, 29, who said: 'You get to save three people. I love you forever'. Coralynn's father, Paul Sobolik, said: ‘I love you forever, you're the best thing that ever happened to me.' Mrs Sobolik said: 'I'm so grateful that Coralynn's memory can live on. 'We are overwhelmed by the support we have received from people all over the world. It's great to know our little girl has inspired so many.'

I’m originally from #California & I cannot live w/o the sun. Even after moving around so much in the last 8 years, I still LOVE the #sunshine more than anything. 😻☀️ As awesome as it is though, prolonged exposure to the sun (& it’s UV rays) can cause skin cancer. Now that I’m a transplant patient, I have to be *extra extra* careful abt it all. The meds 💊 that I’m on have the ability to ⬆️ my chance of getting skin cancer. 😒 Many transplant patients actually die of #metastatic skin cancer. . Yesterday, I had to go to my dermatologist 👩🏽‍⚕️ at @pennmedicine for my first post-transplant skin check. These need to be done at least once a year for transplant patients, if not more. And luckily, my bff @busygirlbeauty 💋 is #dermatologist who keeps me in check. 😂 . ➡️ From SkinCancer.org, here are some other #facts for transplant patients: . 🔅 The most common type of skin cancer after transplant surgery is squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). 🔅 The risk of SCC is about 60-100x higher 📈 after a transplant compared w the general population. 🔅 Transplant patients are also susceptible to other skin cancers, like basal cell carcinoma & #melanoma. 🔅 Daily use of sunscreen 🧴 (at least SPF30 w broad spectrum UVA/UVB coverage), brimmed hats, sunglasses 🕶, & limiting sun exposure btwn 10am - 4pm ⏰ can help reduce the risk of skin cancer (in everybody, not just transplant patients). ✅ . What are some things that you do to protect yourself from those sun rays? ☀️ . . #sun #sunexposure #sunscreen #skincancer #spf #transplant #hearttransplant #lungtransplant #livertransplant #kidneytransplant #organdonation #organtransplant #summer #sunny #weather #cancer #preventative #preventivecare #uvrays #health #hospital #derm #skin #skincare at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

All of my grades finally posted. My first time around I dropped out of college within a year with some horrible grades. As I grew older and living through dialysis and a kidney transplant my perspective on life changed greatly. This time and for the first time in my life I got straight A’s and achieved a 4.0. The bar has certainly been set high after my first semester but I am up for the challenge. 🤘💯💯💯🤘 #camdencountycollege #secondchance #kidneyrecipient #organdonation #giftoflife #nevertooold #collegestudent #motivation #esrd #kidneydisease @donors1 at Camden County College

My name is @tracyvanflores and I am an organ recipient. I spent 2 years on dialysis waiting for a kidney. In April 2007, I received “the call” that a kidney had been found for me and it was being flown to the @uofuhealth I wanted to thank the donor family, so I wrote a letter to them and a few months later I received a phone call from my donor's mother. She told me her daughter’s name was Tracey (my same name) and she was 31 at the time (my same age). She was a victim of a domestic homicide/suicide. I keep in touch with her mother, Yetta, and feel that I will never be able to adequately express my gratitude for the incredibly difficult decision that she made to donate her daughter's organs in the hardest moment of her life. I try to live my life in a way every day that honors Tracey and her family. My transplant was a second chance at life for me. I met my husband about 8 months after my transplant and we’ve been married for over 10 years. I have been blessed to deliver two miracle baby girls thanks to my transplant. Being an organ recipient has really given me a new appreciation for life. Every trip I go on, every bike ride, every Mother's Day card from my children, every Birthday I get to celebrate, I am reminded that I am alive and happy because of the miracle of organ donation and because my donor said yes to organ donation. #yesutah #donatelife #shareyourspare #organdonation

"Our son, Carson, is graduating from high school in a few weeks. He had a liver transplant when he was 8 months old. We got a sneak peek of a photo session & we had just to capture him in his regalia with his scars. To Elijah’s precious family, How do you say thank you for the gift of life? How do you say thank you for the opportunity to witness countless firsts we didn’t think we would see when our son was waiting for his new liver when he was only eight months old? How do you say thank you for the simple gifts of day-to-day life we will never take for granted? We have hopefully taught Carson to honor Elijah’s precious gift of life. Carson was once self conscious of his scars, but no longer. Scars are proof of his journey and survival. Love, Grateful parent" Thank you for all of the graduations made possible by a donor.

Idag har det blivit väldigt dåligt med uppdateringar från mitt håll. Både igår och idag har jag spenderat på Sahlgrenska och idag har jag gjort en del jobbiga undersökningar. Har dessutom haft en del ont och kräkts i efterhand och därför har det helt enkelt inte funnits ork att skriva så mycket. Kompenserar med en liten tumme upp för att dagens undersökningar äntligen är färdiga och att det är ett tag tills jag behöver göra det igen! Hoppas ni alla får en trevlig kväll så ska jag bättra mig med inläggen tills imorgon 😊🌸 #merorgandonation #blidonator #organdonation #transplantation #instatakeover

We always appreciate invitations to connect with healthcare professionals and talk about the work that we do for families during their toughest hours. Most recently we were invited to present during the 2019 Manitoba Pediatric Health Conference at @hsc_winnipeg. Camille is one of our donor coordinators. A nurse with specialized training, she shared her expertise and walked those in attendance through the journey to organ donation, including how the donation team supports families and provides them with the information they need to make informed decisions about organ donation. #organdonation #transplant #giftoflife #education #nurse #teamwork #signupforlife #beadonor

CHENNAI: Doctors at Fortis Malar Hospital successfully performed a heart transplant to save the life of a two-year-old boy from Villupuram, after receiving it from a donor of his age. According to a release, “The recipient, Rohan, received the heart from the youngest organ donor, a two-year-old boy from Mumbai. The transplant was performed by a team of doctors led Dr K R Balakrishnan, Director, Cardiac Sciences, Fortis Malar Hospital.” “Rohan was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy, weakening of a heart chamber due to decreased pumping of blood by the heart. However, despite medication, his condition did not improve. The heart transplant was the only solution and he was registered in the State Transplant Registry for a possible donated heart.” “On February 10, the two-year-old donor suffered irreversible brain damage. The family decided to donate the organs. The organs saved the lives of six people, out of which four recipients were children including Rohan. A team of doctors from Fortis Malar hospital flew to Mumbai to retrieve the heart which was air-lifted to Chennai.”. . . . .

"At every stage of my kidney disease, from first diagnosis to now, research has played a major part in the successful outcome of my treatment, allowing me to live a full and very active life. . “I was first diagnosed when a renal research unit from Newcastle University visited my school. For the next 25 years I was monitored closely, especially when I had my children. Eventually I needed dialysis which was followed by a live donor transplant, 22 years ago, from my very special sister. All thanks to dedicated research. . “So I was delighted when Kidney Research UK announced they were organising a Bridges Walks here in Newcastle. Not everybody can run marathons, but most people can walk a few miles, so taking part in a Kidney Research UK Bridges walk gives those people a similar sense of fun and togetherness, with the opportunity to raise money and awareness for a fantastic charity. I’ve walked on every Newcastle Bridges Walk since it started (and also two London Bridges Walks) with great support from my family and friends. Come and join us on Sunday 14 July!" Philippa G. .

Snapshots from our debut Organ Donation awareness drive at Mayor School, Jalandhar held on 21st May 2019. It was such a pleasure to interact, talk and share stories with a classroom full of students and teachers. Our founding member Aadit Mittal was our keynote speaker for the event and was ably assisted by Ayaan, our youngest and most active member at Make yourself Proud initiative. Aadit was highly appreciated by everyone for his great presentation skills, easy to understand concepts and examples. Most heartening was to see so many questions and queries from the students of Mayor School by the end of the presentation and their eagerness to know more and even join our awareness campaign. #organdonation #organdonors #greatnesslieswithin #helpinghand #selflessness #savealife #recycleyourbody #kindness #makeadifference #makeyourselfproud #makethisworldabetterplace #initiative # #beasuperhero #betterqualityoflife #bethedifference #awareness #jointhechain #jalandhar #punjab #india #onestepatatime at Mayor World School

I'm on the transplant list 🙌 easy peasy! This has been the hardest 5 months of my life. Physically, spiritually & emotionally. Learning how to take each day as it comes & staying in the present moment. My pain has come back, I kept asking what's happening as I couldn't keep going with this pain, still trying to lower the methadone for transplant. Thinking about palliative care for the next step. Now listed for a double lung transplant. I wanna thank everyone who has been beside me, whether in spirit or person. Iam grateful for your support & love. I have started giving thanks to the donars family, the donar & their lungs. I do this everyday. Please if your not already signed up for organ donation, please sign up & let your friends & family know your wishes. You could save a life. #organdonation #donatelife #cysticfibrosis #grateful #gratitude

You probably asking yourself whats going on here?... Let me explain!... Due to heart transplant and all the strong and so far high dose lever on anti rejection and immunosuppressive meds some side effects will occur.And I have a few of them. Over time these side effects will decrease or go away completely after they lower the meds lever. Right now I'm having a light on and off numbness around my nose, cheek, jaw and chin. That's why I'm tapping these areas. It's helping me to reconnect and activate the nervs and muscles again. As you can see in the other two clips my hands is shaking more than usual.. . . #lvadpatient #warrior #inspire #mindset #heartfailure #sideeffects #motivation # #secondchance #lvad #immunosuppressive # #thenewbeginning #antirejection # #artificialheart #heartmate #organdonation #followme #nevergiveup #thewaitinglist #thewarriorwithin # #Survivermode #life # #tidattleva #keeponliving #beadonor # #donatelife #giftoflife #stillalive # #heartdiseaseawareness #hearttransplant #

https://www.facebook.com/donate/2280582515486734/?fundraiser_source=external_url My birthday ties in nicely with the end of CF Awareness month, but this year, as I've actually reached the milestone big 3-0, I'm asking if anyone would like to make a donation to FREEMAN HEART & LUNG TRANSPLANT ASSOCIATION. I've chosen this charity because they do incredible work, both pre- and post- surgery, and I hope that you'll consider contributing as a way of celebrating with me. I think most that know me would agree that they have not only saved my life, but made it a million times better... my quality of life is just indescribable in comparison to how it was before. Without them, there's a very real chance I may not have made my 30th birthday!!!!! It doesn't matter if you donate 1p, a tenner, or more... every penny will help towards changing lives and saving lives 😊 **to do fb fundraiser, you have to enter a goal amount, but any money raised will be gratefully recieved 6 days and counting till I'm out of my twenties.... eek!! 💜Laura xx #cysterwhofightsuk #cysticfibrosis #lungtransplant #newlungsnewlife #cfawarenessmonth #cfam2019 #keepfighting #organdonation #fhlta #breatheeasy
