Letter From Local 1st Grader Wins Support for RHTH

 As a non-profit, we are extremely grateful for donations of all sizes in support of transplant families and Restoring Hope Transplant House, but a recent letter from first grader Morgan Endres of Windsor Elementary School in DeForest, really warmed our hearts.  Students at Windsor were recently asked to submit letters to the student council in support of a local charity of their choice.  Morgan's letter in support of Restoring Hope Transplant House won for her class and a $25 donation was made to Restoring Hope Transplant House in her honor.  Morgan's grandparents have been touched by a very personal transplant experience of their own.  What a fun moment it was to meet Morgan, sister Taryn and mom Jolene and hear more about their story and give them a tour of the house.

What a blessing it was been to welcome transplant families from all parts of Wisconsin and beyond this year.  Their transplant journeys have become our own personal journeys as many guests become like family during lengthy stays.  Heartfelt donations and fundraiser type activities like this are so critical to the house moving forward so we can focus more and more attention on serving our guests.

Many thanks to Morgan and all of the amazing people that make it possible for us to care for transplant families on a daily basis!

(note of clarification: RHTH is an independent non-profit run by a dedicated Board of Directors that works closely with UW Hospital and the UW Transplant Programs to house visiting transplant patients and/or caregivers)
