It’s another #tbt, throwback Thursday.

I should have posted this earlier, like the day after it aired on TV, but I didn’t and I’m sorry.

Click Here to view the News segment about me on our local station KOIN 6 by Amy Frazier.

There is a story about how this all came about, and how the local news contacted me.  On Facebook I follow a page, A Kidney for Scott.  Scott received a kidney transplant (click here to see his story) and now uses his page to bring awareness to others.  One day, I asked him if he would be willing to mention my website and give me a little shout-out, and he did! The very next day, I got an email submission from Amy Frazier about doing a new story about me.   Amy and I connected and that is how we ended up doing the story. 

I want to give a very special thank you to Amy Frazier for taking the time to talk with me about my experience and for her continuous efforts to tell other organ donation stories.  Also want to thank Bill, who filmed the whole thing and KOIN 6 News for putting it together and airing on their television program.
