Mark Lipinski has been waiting for a kidney transplant -- and he is FINALLY GETTING ONE. Many of you became a fan of Mark when he did the Quilter's Night OUT at the 2010 Sew Expo. I am proud to be one of Mark's cupcakes....and the mug he sent me after the show fits under my Kuerig perfectly.
After he started his internet radio show -- CREATIVE MOJO -- I called in one day and WON THE PRIZE...I love this picture of me and Mark at a Quilt Market. He is an awesome person...and, like many of you, I have been following Mark for years and worry about his health.
Here's what he wrote on Facebook on March 18: In exactly 10 days from today, I will receive a
kidney from my friend and neighbor, Mary Eichler! Please, do not worry
for me, and I only ask that you keep me in good thought. On the other
hand, I would greatly appreciate it if your prayers
and cards and thoughtfulness and notes of support go directly to Kidney
Mary - after all, SHE, and she alone, is the HERO here. Here is her
address: "Kidney Mary" Eichler; 29 Parker Road; Long Valley, NJ 07853
I am TERRIBLE at sending any kind of snail mail thing, Mark. But I AM GOING TO DO THIS FOR YOU.
And I'm putting this up on my blog because I hope you will send a card to Kidney Mary , too She is one very special woman...
Here's to keeping good thoughts for both of you...
