Bridging the Gap
After receiving my heart transplant, I enrolled in the JumpStart Program and received financial support to take Certified Nursing Assistant Classes. Now, I have a career I would never have been able to achieve without the JumpStart Program and assistance from GTF.

GTF supports my transplant patients in ways beyond what hospitals are able to do. GTF services assist patients in obtaining essential medications and maintaining a successful transplant. For this reason, I continue to support GTF and the programs they provide.

Transplant is just a word until you are faced with it. My mentor made me realize I was not alone. Here was someone who had walked the path I was now on. A guide to what may lie ahead and a constant source of encouragement.

Before my transplant, I would have never imagined the direction my life could take. I am so grateful to the transplant community for giving me the opportunity to succeed in many different aspects of my life!
