My daughter Lauren Meizo was place on the Heart & Kidney Transplant List again. Lauren had her first heart transplant on December 30, 2013. In June her heart went into "heart shock" and never recover plus damaging her kidneys.

During our first journey on the heart transplant list, I turned my journal into a book to educate, inform and if you would like to know what it is like living on the heart transplant list, this is our story.
"Strength in a Heartbeat, Diary of a Heart Transplant" is a true count of what it is to be on the heart transplant list.
"It captivates your thoughts and draws you into each day, each battle and struggle. Not only do you begin to understand the magnitude of what's going on, it comes from a mother's perspective watching what her child is going through. You see the raw life in a hospital where day after day you see improvement only to take major steps back. You will be in awe of the human spirit, the strength of a warrior, whose thirst for life drove her through the day to day challenges receiving a new heart has brought. I encourage you to read this, to learn and understand the strength of our drive to live, to do more than survive, so when life knocks on your door (and it will at some point) you can know the strength to persevere is in there, it's locked inside, we just need the courage and strength to let our warrior come out to save us".
