...for your kindness.
On June 11, 2002, Marilyn Hillman underwent a successful heart transplant at the University of Washington Medical Center and on Sept. 21 was able to come back home to Alaska.
We truly are blessed people in more ways than one, having so many people out there that care so much for us, family being there for us, people visiting us in the hospital, keeping us in their thoughts, calling us while we were in the hospital, sent flowers, cards and most importantly, kept us in their prayers.
We want to thank all the people and the businesses for their generous contributions that went toward the fund-raiser that was set up for us. It definitely took the financial burden off of us.
Marilyn is doing fine adapting to her new heart and is able to do things that she has never done before.
"I am so grateful for having another chance at life and I am very appreciative to the many people that put themselves on a donor's list. What a commitment and what a difference you make," she said.
Thank you all.
Marilyn and John Hillman
...for the work.
