Team Paddy

For those interested in supporting Team Paddy, whether you choose to participate in the 1K/5K event or are considering making a financial donation to the One Legacy Foundation, I wanted you to know why this event is very important to us all.  

A little over a year ago, I was diagnosed with non-alcohol related liver cancer. Although chemotherapy surgery was successful, the potential for the return of cancer or the spread of cancer mandated that I be placed on a liver transplant list. After several months on the list and eight failed donor matches, on Christmas Day 2022, I received a call that a suitable liver donation had been located.  I underwent a successful transplant and will be four months out from the date of the transplant on the day of this event. Had it not been for the amazingly unselfish gift of life given to me by the donor, I would be facing the recurrence or spread of cancer and a significantly shortened life span. 

The significance of the gift of life provided by living organ donors and organ donors who have given the ultimate sacrifice, cannot be overstated. Anything any of us can do to contribute to organ transplant organizations, like One Legacy, will have a huge impact on the lives of those of us blessed enough to be recipients and our families. Anything any of us can do to effectively communicate the importance of organ donation, within our society, is equally important. 

Please, consider participating as part of Team Paddy in the 1K/5K event if you are in Southern California.  If you are not conveniently located nearby, please consider a donation to One Legacy as a supporter of Team Paddy.  Regardless of the type and magnitude of your support, it will make an immediate positive impact on the lives of organ donation recipients and their families.

Thank you from someone who is living proof of how much supporting foundations such as One Legacy can and does matter!
