'Tis the Season!

There has been an incredible outpouring of support for our family in the past few weeks. The financial help is wonderful, but the support involves much more than just money. We appreciate each and every gesture:  thoughts, prayers, cards, phone calls, visits, and gifts. Our talented and generous friends spent countless hours organizing and orchestrating fundraising events for us--thank you to all who participated in any part of them. 

On Thanksgiving weekend, some dear musical friends teamed up with LaSalle Market in Canton, CT and sponsored an evening of live music with donations to benefit our fundraiser. Friends, family, and even Santa himself contributed to the evening which raised more than $700.

Transplant:  an art bizarre + fundraiser, the pop-up event organized at ArtSpace on December 14, was a huge success. We loved seeing so many friends and family--that big space was filled to the brim with LOVE. Contributions to the John Toomey Kidney Fund from the event totaled $11,000!  

Wonderful colleagues at my job surprised me this week with some holiday cash. Our little family is feeling the love!
