What's your Excuse

I’d like to bring something to your attention.

My Twitter friend Jessi @Jbenj219 has Cystic Fibrosis and in 2011 she was hospitalized so many times i lost count… 2012 hasn’t been any easier on her.

Jessi was admitted again yesterday, and was in some pain today.
To Quote her tweet "Being moved to the Intensive Special Care Unit (ISCU). A level of care between ICU and regular floor.

She tweets and she blogs which i read and always hope the next post will be “guess what i got today!” but She is waiting for a double lung transplant and the wait is long…. for some too long :(

Jessi is Smart, Funny, Brave and a Fighter.. she will not let this disease get the better of her. Please read her blog for examples of her courageousness.
So as she waits for her transplant, Think about Organ donation. Whats stopping you? you could save up to 8 lives by donating your organs

From Organdonor.gov
“Someone is added to the transplant list every 11 minutes! Each day, about 77 people receive organ transplants. However, 19 people die each day waiting for transplants that can’t take place because of the shortage of donated organs. Organ transplantation has become an accepted medical treatment for end stage organ failure”


So Save a life and help someone else live #BreatheEasy
