On Easter Sunday, 1996, my dad received a life-saving double lung transplant at the University of Colorado Medical Center in Denver. During the procedure, he received eight units of blood. Because of the generosity of those blood and organ donors, my family and friends were blessed with 17 more years of happy memories with my dad. I donate every quarter in honor of the people who gave me that time with him.
