  1. Hi Jackie,
    I found out about Ana on 3/1/13 at an American Heart Association Go Red for Women event where we were promote awareness of organ donation. I received a lung transplant 4 1/2 years ago at Columbia Presbyterian. We have a group that meets the 3rd Thursday of the month at ORMC. When a was talking to the people registering for the event I met a very nice lady from New Paltz who told me she has been following your blog about Ana’s liver transplant.You are doing such an amazing job telling your family story. I did tell my friend from my group about your blog because she experienced a similiar situation with her daughter who recieved a heart transplant. Her name is Veronica Barker and she has been in the Record several times and on cable 6 this weekend about importance of CPR in the community. I know life is extremely hectic now during the initial phase post transplant but I wanted you to know about our group. Please feel free to contact us if you need any help. I will be at the Shamrock Run 3/17 by 8:00AM if you want to meet some members of our group. I wish Ana a smooth and quick recovery. Life does become normal again day by day with great family support. I wish the best to all of you. I look forward to meeting you and your family in the future. Sincerely, Ellen Dunn

  2. I am also grateful to everyone who is supporting all of you through this time. Thank you all so much. Please remember to call on the wider community as you need to – we are here and waiting. Thank you Janne, Amy, Stefan, Liz, Caroline and Kathy for everything you are doing.

  3. Yes Jackie this week was a practice run for sure. I don’t think any of us could have thought of these particular details until now. And the one that stands out is “What happen’s if Emily gets sick and needs to be picked up from school?” Know that Amy,Stefan and I are talking about things as they come up and will need to have these solutions in place if it comes to you having the surgery along side of Ana. We need to have solutions that will make all 4 of you feel secure, so you can focus on your healing process. It’s time to put our seat belts on and our heads together. We will work this out and I know we have incredible support. Love you (as I used to say to Amy and Jim when they were little) so many muches! Janne

  4. I’m so grateful that you have such an incredible, wonderful support system…..please drive around today and give each and every one of them a hug from me …
    I’ll do portraits of their pets if they want to show my gratitude… 🙂
