Guest Post: Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks’ Trust for Life

115,000 men, women and children are waiting on a lifesaving transplant; in Kentucky that number is around 1,000. Being a registered organ donor is so important to many donor and recipient families across the entire state of Kentucky. It’s very significant in my life as well.

My name is Crysta McGee and I am a Community Educator for Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks’ Trust for Life in conjunction with Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates. I focus on youth and multicultural outreach. My story starts way before my job and only begins to explain why Kosair Charities means so much to me, TFL and KODA. All of our missions converge; all three organizations are involved in helping save lives.

My granddad was living the best retired life. While I went away to college, all that began to change for him. He started going into renal failure and was put on dialysis several days a week. The only cure for dialysis is a kidney transplant. Unfortunately, Granddaddy was ineligible for transplant for many reasons.

I saw my family’s situation and basically stereotyped organ donation and transplants (like many other people)- I thought it was something that just impacted older people. It would never happen to me nor anyone younger than me.

I was TOTALLY wrong.

The first day I walked into the TFL office on the Eastern Parkway Kosair Charities Campus (also known as the house of good deeds to me), I was hit with so many stories and pictures of children that have been impacted by this wonderful mission. Seeing these Kosair Kids® in the flesh has totally changed my way of thinking about donation and about life in general.

Louisville resident, Eleanor received a heart transplant when she was just 2 months old- she’s now 7, loves going to school and playing with her little sister.

Riley was born with Restrictive Cardiomyopathy. His parents were told he wouldn’t make it to 2 years old. Thanks to someone saying yes to donation, Riley just celebrated his 13th birthday and he’s competing in the upcoming Transplant Games of America. Posters of him are featured in Circuit Court Clerks Offices across the state.

Keegan saved 5 lives when he was 6 years old- 3 with his organs and his heart valves saved 2 little boys around his age. 75% of donated heart valves go to pediatric patients. I never got the chance to meet Keegan, but I know he was an awesome little dude from working with his mom Shannon.

Many more stories could be told about the people I’ve met and the stories I’ve been moved by, but I’ll spare you some reading!

We have space to celebrate these kids and their families as well as funds to go around the state and tell their stories thanks to Kosair Charities! Our partnership makes our reach even greater just by having the Kosair name attached.

Registering as an organ donor simply means if I could save a life, I would save a life. It could possibly help one of our Kosair Kids!

Remember to say YES to organ donation and be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud. Happy Donate Life Month! DonateLifeKY.org

Media Photo Opportunity this Thursday: December 14 – Sneak Peek of Kosair Kids® Playhouses

Building Industry Charitable Foundation, YouthBuild Louisville, River City Bank & Kosair Charities® Are Building Dream Playhouses for Two Deserving Kosair Kids®

WHAT: The Building Industry Charitable Foundation of the Building Industry Association of Greater Louisville, in partnership with Kosair Charities, YouthBuild Louisville, and River City Bank will present the dream playhouses built for two very deserving Kosair Kids® during the “Revealing of the Playhouses” event upcoming March 22, 2018.

The construction of the dream houses began earlier this fall, and this Thursday the children selected will be able to preview the progress of their new dream playhouses for the first time. This is a wonderful opportunity for the media to interview the families and see the construction of the playhouses. 

WHEN:       Thursday, December 14 starting at 4:30 p.m.

WHO:       Playhouse Builders:  Scott Welch (Welch Builders, Inc.) and Tommy McKechnie  (Stonehenge Construction, LLC)       Interior Designers:  Lisa Lynn Designs & Lisa Steinbock (Steinbock Interiors, LLC)
Sponsors: River City Bank, Building Industry Association of Greater Louisville, Kosair Charities, and YouthBuild Louisville
Playhouse recipient: Ellie Kate Cook and her family
Playhouse recipient: Lucas Tucker and his family

WHERE:     YouthBuild, 800 South Preston Street Louisville, KY 40203

WHY:          The playhouses are designed, built and decorated especially for each recipient, and the children are involved in every step of the process. Registered builders and remodelers of the Building Industry Association of Greater Louisville (BIA) teamed up with local businesses to create playhouses that will not only enhance the child’s life, but will also serve as a therapy-aide for continued strength and improvement to their quality of life.

The playhouses are a perfect project for the foundation because it allows members of the Building Industry Association of Greater Louisville to use their talents and expertise to not only build something special for a deserving child and family, but also share their skills with the students of YouthBuild Louisville by mentoring the young people involved in the trades program.

The 2018 recipients are:

Ellie Kate Cook

Originally deaf, but with the help of cochlear implants, Ellie Kate has been able to hear for the past 3 years, but she is still behind. She began kindergarten this past year and while she struggles to keep up with her peers, she is making tremendous strides. Ellie Kate’s wonderful family includes two brothers ages 10 and 14, and her mom and dad are currently in the process of adopting another little girl with a hearing loss.  Her playhouse will expand her language capabilities, social, and play skills and will also benefit her new sibling with hearing loss.

Lucas Tucker

Diagnosed with Down syndrome at birth, seven-year-old Lucas has a larger than life personality. He loves meeting new people, stuffed animals, learning about new things, Michael Jackson and shoes, for which he has given a name to everyLucasIMG_7988 pair in his household. Lucas’s loving family includes two brothers ages 10 and 15. He has low muscle tone, cognitive and speech delay, and his new playhouse will assist him in the life skills he requires, muscle tone, social skills, and very importantly, his independence.
