Join : Fight For Jontanna
Join.Fight.For.Jontanna, the support has been nothing short of amazing and it's an honor to receive so much support. Your constant thoughts, prayers, encouraging words, gestures and more keep me motivated and I ask that you continue to do so.
Although I have received my TRANSPLANT :)))) , the recovery process is still just as important, if not more important than the procedure itself. Let's continue to share my story, pray and uplift!
I love & appreciate you alllllllll! You are all family
Again, I thank each and every one of you that supports me throughout this entire process...
Let's keep sharing and spreading the word about my efforts in fundraising! As a team, WE will get through this!
It brings me an INFINITE amount of pleasure to announce that I received a call, Friday, informing me that I WILL BE PLACED ON THE LIVER TRANSPLANT WAITING LIST!!!!!! I've been waiting for this moment for the past SIX years & I'm blessed to have remained stable enough throughout the process.
First, I'd like to give ALLLLL praises to God. He has NEVER left my side and constantly reassures me that He has not given up on me... Granted at times, I may have given up on myself.
Secondly, I have to thank my mom!!! No matter what time, day or night, near or FAR, she has been the ONLY person there through it all. I know I wouldn't have made it without you and God above. I love you, whole heartedly. It hurts me so much to see my mom hurting for me when I'm ill, knowing as a MOTHER, there's nothing she can do but pray for her child. In corroboration, one of my most recognizable attributes would have to be STRENGTH. My character & integrity both symbolize the ethics she's instilled in me and has aided me in evolving to the young woman I am today.
Lastly, I would like to thank each and every individual who has ever prayed for me or displayed ANY act of kindness, encouragement, sympathy, etc.. My family, friends, the entire SGHS community, the Albany community, my dear friend Louis Williams, & of course, my TEAM of supporters, Join.Fight.For.Jontanna , I LOVE YOU âœŠðŸ’š! This is only the beginning! I'm gonna end this quoting one of my favorite songs :
"And I can't help but give You glory , when I think about MY story... And I KNOW, You favored ME because my enemies did try but couldn't triumph OVER ME!! YES, they did TRY but couldn't triumph OVER ME!!"
I ask that you continue to keep me uplifted in prayer, sharing my link, checking on me (I may not look sick on the exterior but right now my interior is pretty ill), and supporting me!!! If we can SURPASS my goal to assure proper care for this new organ, it will remove tons of strain and stress from my family and I... Every penny helps!!
With deepest gratitude,
As some may or may not know, I was told by my doctor that I could be listed as of the beginning of MARCH, which is right around the corner!!! Such a bittersweet, joyous and overwhelming feeling it was to hear those words. I've been trying to be listed for nearly seven years now so that was truly amazing.
Monday, February 10, 2014 I was admitted at Emory, again. This time I was running a fever, in tons of pain, etc. Initially, I was scheduled to have a MRI done that day (Every 3 months I have to have a MRI done because my chances of liver CANCER increase...SCARY)!! We called and spoke with the on-call doctor and was told to make my way to the ER. As usual, they drew blood, used a catheter for urine, inserted an IV, started pain medicine and begin giving me fluids amongst other things. I was later transported into the actual hospital where I remained for the rest of the week (yes, I spent Valentine's Day in the hospital) lol :) .
During my admission, I became aware that my liver failure has began to cause inflammation to my gallbladder. There was so much swelling in my abdomen and that was the cause for all of my pain. Being I'm to be listed for a transplant soon they didn't want to put me through two surgeries when I could be given medication to ease the pain or simply become more tolerable. Hopefully, I stay as stable as possible throughout this waiting game and I can avoid having to have my gallbladder removed prior to transplant surgery.
With that being said, I want to at least try to reach my overall goal by March! Think we can do it? I'm sure we can! I did some research a few weeks and learned that the color "green" symbolizes liver disease/liver awareness. Although, my last name is Greene, I still like to think it's pretty cool.
Let's continue to share, pray, contribute & FIGHT FOR JONTANNA :) !
