A look back at 2013 {part 1}

Hands down the fastest year of my life. I can’t believe it’s over, but I’m so excited for what’s ahead. I was challenged in so many ways this year and I feel like I’ve become a better person and better photographer because of it. I’m so blessed to have the best family on earth, who…

Kidney for Christine

We’ve lived in Midvale for about a year now. And a few months after we moved I met a very sweet lady from church. Her name, Christine Cortez. I really didn’t know much about Christine, but each time I saw her I learned a little more. And every time I heard more, I just became…

    These stories are always so touching to me. My dad also has kidney failure. So i understand the strength it takes for a person to live everyday on dialysis. Technology is such a blessing. I wish you the best of luck during your journey.

    Christine is one of my favorite people in the entire world. I have been telling her for years I would give her all of my kidneys–now I am calling to see if I am a match!ReplyCancel

    Spread the word people. Tell everyone you know. You may not be able to be Christine’s donor, but I’m sure there is someone you’ll run across that you can donate to. Educate yourself and look for the signs of renal failure. It can happen to anyone. I was very touched by Christine’s post.ReplyCancel

    If words could express the bountious emotions that encompass my soul today,then they would project themselves as varying degrees of beautiful colors of light. I am amazed at what these wonderful women have done for Christine. What an expression of love for her!!! Thank you so much!!! When my daughter Christine called to let me know what her friends were planning, I could hear the joy and excitement in her voice. These ladies brought about a complete makeover from the shopping for clothes,the airbrushing makeup,and the hair styling,to the photo session. Christine is an awe-inspiring young woman,and my life has been blessed to be her mother. If anyone is interested in donating a kidney please contact Christy Baker transplant department at 801-507-3380.ReplyCancel
