Marie Claire Dec 2014 Issue

As you know by now (I think), my story was featured in this month's issue of Marie Claire. I was the "after" story and Jenna was the "before". Jenna and her family started the #GetMeTo21 campaign and it has rasied some serious awareness for organ donation. Here's the video that they made explaining this campaign and just how important it is to sign up as an organ donor so that Jenna and so many others can have a second chance like me!

The last magazine I read before my transplant was Marie Claire and just a few days later I had my transplant. The issue I read was the "Naked Issue" where celebrities go nude for a good cause and in 2014 the cause was Organ Donation.

And now, since Jenna's feature in Marie Claire, she too has recieved her transplant!! She had her surgery on the 10th of December and is now currently in ICU. It's a hard recovery and Jenna has gotten off to a rough start but let's all keep her in our thoughts and hope that she gets out of ICU soon!! I will be following her recovery closely and posting updates on my Deer Delights Facebook page.

To end off on a lighter note, here is a collage of photos taken at the Marie Claire photo shoot. These photos were meant to accompany my story in the magazine but Marie Claire decided to rather select some of my instagram pictures.
