Happy Birthday Rehtaeh! You would be turning 25 today and all I felt this morning when I got up was immense saddness. I cried so hard for you today, and for all the yesterdays we never had a chance to share.

You remain my world. You always will be. I love you ❤️🙏🏼

Dear Donor Family,

I am writing this letter to you, to say thank you. I am a heart transplant recipient.

This year, I had suddenly become unwell. I was eventually diagnosed with Idiopathis Cardiac Myopathy – heart failure. The doctors believe that it was caused by a virus.

The doctors told me that I would need a new heart. I was only seventeen years old.
