Update: 04/16/2016 - We. Threw. Out. The. First. Pitch. OMG.

"We were wondering if you would like to throw the first pitch out in honor of Organ Donation Awareness month" asked Cleveland Clinic , "You have been such an inspiration for those who work here, the transplant community and we would love for you to represent Cleveland Clinic Children's at the Cleveland Indians game...."

I am pretty sure my jaw was resting on the floor but I quickly got my druthers together and sputtered out - "ummmm YES YES YES! YES I would Love To!"

An opportunity to show my new found love for Organ Donation (well let me clarify I have ALWAYS checked yes since 16 when I got my license) - but you all know how much this has increased over the past year in my journey with Brodie.


Lifebanc and Donate Life America work to put together a MONTH a WHOLE MONTH to educate, inspire, share and publicize the GIFT OF LIFE and WHAT and HOW Organ Donation changes the individuals, families and the world.

Of course we were in.

Brodie's Good Vibe Tribe rallied and filled over two sections – 300+ people in attendance.

The pitch – Brodie and I? We nailed it.

Harper and Russ were there every sweat drop along the way.

My pitch? Soared over the plate – until the catcher dropped it! Oh Boy!

What an honor.

So humbled and amazed and inspired by the day, the honor, the people, the friends and this new life journey in the transplant world.

LOVE your LIFE story.
