As you all know I am second generation in the Promotional Products world, and having lost my father 2 ½ years ago, I never imagined how I would continue in this business. Somehow you do, and it’s through the support of many friends and colleagues that you do. This past February, my mother took ill and at the time we didn’t know it, but she was battling COVID-19, which left her in Kidney failure. It turns out that she was lucky to have gotten COVID-19, prior to us knowing what it was because she was treated with heavy medicines and heavy doses of Oxygen. Linda goes to Dialysis every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 2 to 5 PM, and since March I have been able to take her and pick up from every session.
We have had numerous doctor appointments, and every time she gets good news about how she is doing. They are all so encouraging, that the Doctors believe that one day she will be able to give up dialysis, but only if she is to be a recipient of a new Kidney.
We have been introduced to Renewal, a non-profit organization that assists with matching prospective donors with people on the Kidney Registry List, which Linda is now on.
On Wednesday January 6th, at 7:30PM (est.) my family and Renewal will be hosting a zoom call which is informational about how we can all help out with awareness and knowledge to assist no only my mother, but others who may be in a similar situation.
I am attaching invite file with the information about the zoom call along with the link below for the meeting.
Please click on the link and join the webinar this Wednesday night.
We are all great at marketing as that is what we do every day with our clients, and so I’m asking for assisting in marketing the Donor awareness program to all your family, friends, and co-workers in the hope that we can accomplish our goal not only for Linda, but for any other person battling in a similar situation.
If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.
