Thank You Ketchikan
By Sara Schroeder

Since I left Ketchikan in 2006, I have moved residences at least once every year, and that leaves a lot of packing and unpacking. Today I was sorting through some old papers and I found the news article from a few weeks following my transplant in 2005. I could go into to various stories about how thankful I am, how I am doing, what my future holds, etc. but I will keep it simple and just want to say, Thank You Ketchikan.

Thank You for helping me become who I am today and who I will be tomorrow, and Thank You for all of you generosity during my time of need. I believe that Ketchikan is very unique in this way, and I am reminded everyday just how wonderful the people are there. Thank you.
