As many of you know today is the first anniversary of Mad’s transplant surgery. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the donor’s family and the wonderful staff at UPMC. Mad was so grateful to get home for Caroline’s arrival and to spend a wonderful summer with her family. We would like to thank Drs. Simms and Farber at Boston Medical Center who were dedicated to Mad’s care for many years. Of course, special thanks to Terry and Barb Peterson for their generosity, love and support. To all of Mad’s many friends and supporters - THANK YOU! We will be forever grateful. Jim & family
Those who knew Madeline know that she and Jim enjoyed visiting Aruba each January with a large group of close friends.
As Jim was recently preparing for this annual trip, he came across these pictures. He believes they were taken in 1996 during their first Aruban vacation.
As often as possible, we'll try to update this page to let you know how Madeline is doing and where she is in her fight for new lungs. Visit often!
