To the Editor:
To our wonderful community I want to say that one year ago this month I had two of the most memorable events of my life, the Trees of Hope Benefit at Redway School and my lung transplant at Stanford.
The first event sustained me during the second one in so many ways. The tremendous level of provided a place of safety and comfort, especially as I navigated those first months of the transplant process.
I want to thank you all again. You truly saved my life and I will never forget that.
With gratitude and love from Claire, too.
