Miracles Do Happen – Bethel Woman’s Life Saved With Liver Transplant
Prayers were answered in the best possible way recently. In light of the heart wrenching lack of humanity we've seen in our world, I'm thrilled to share this story of joy with you.
On June 2nd, I wrote this blog about Susan Myers:
To me, part of living a complete life is knowing that you’ve done all you can do when the need is there. Certainly, being a donor of this magnitude involves more than a simple act of paying it forward. But how amazing would it be to know that you saved a life?
Bethel resident, Susan Myers, is currently in liver failure and is hoping someone reading this who has Type O blood, or knows someone that does, will be a match.
I am over the moon about the email I just received from Susan's daughter Casey:
In early June I reached out to you, asking you to help my family in our search to find a liver donor for my mother. I am in awe of the generosity with which you wrote and posted the article about my mother. I am writing again to let you know that my Mom received a new liver yesterday. A young woman was on life support, and her mother dictated that the liver be donated to my mom. We do not know who this woman or the family is, and we do not know how they heard of us, but it is very possible that your press had something to do with it. I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a part of my family's happy ending. If you are interested in reading about the full story, I am attaching a link to my blog. Thank you again, may God bless you all.

We relay so many stories every day, not often does my heart burst with such pride to see the power of paying it forward.
