I received this coin in June 2019 from Alicia. Alicia's is the daughter of the woman who received a kidney from me on 4/29/19.

I found out about Mari from a local TV station covering a fundraiser to help Mari with her medical costs related to her kidney disease. Mari had a poster displayed, behind her, looking for a donor. Mari was very emotional when she said she wanted to be "here" for when Alicia gets married and for her grandchildren. Her story and plea brought me to tears as I just had my second grandson on 3/5/18. I immediately called the phone number and realized I was one of the blood type she needed. I went that very afternoon and started the first of many tests to be a match for Mari!

I am happy to say that, as of this writing on 3/17/20, Mari and I are both healthy and fully recovered. I witnessed her daughter's wedding and Mari's joy as she was able to be present and healthy!

A lovely colleague gave me this Ulysses butterfly coin in Providence, RI on my 65th birthday, as she thanked me for actions that she appreciated at work. Such a random and thoughtful act! The concept grabbed my imagination, and I'm looking for the next opportunity to pass along some friendship and send Beautiful Butterfly forward. We certainly need kindness more than ever in this crazy world we live in- Let's commit to that!
