We received this heartfelt note from the American Heart Association. It feels good to be recognized by colleague organizations in the fight against Heart Disease!
Dear Cynthia —
From our Heart Family to yours, we thank you for speaking out for policies that help build healthier communities and healthier lives. Your time, voice and energy are important to saving and improving lives. It’s because of your inspiring dedication to the American Heart Association’s mission that we are making an impact in fighting heart diseases and stroke. During this season of Thanksgiving, we thank you for making our world a healthier place to live, work, and play.

Coach Malone and Mrs. Malone,
I want to thank you both for your everlasting efforts supporting the transplant candidates and the American Heart Association.
Coach my father died of heart attack in 1974 at the age of 59. I know it was many years ago and treatment was not as advanced as it is today. As a young person, I would see my father in chest pain many times during his life. I still think even back then he waited too long to get the care he needed.
I have been a supporter of the Heart Association for many years now. As a participant of your Cardiac Car Show for the past three years, I just want to say that your message is very important and that you are the living example that every hard headed man should follow.
With the knowledge of what my father went through I am now 69 going on 70. You are passing on the important message of today for all Men and Women. I want to thank you for all you and your staff is doing. I salute you today and every day.
God bless you and your family.
Mr. and Mrs. H. S.
Chip’n Away @ Heart Disease received thanks for donation to transplant candidates, recipients, living donors and their families giving financial, educational and emotional support.
The Lord works in mysterious ways and I feel it was definitely meant for our paths to cross.I still would like for you to speak to our congregation as I feel they would truly benefit from your testimony.

On behalf of the entire staff at LifeLink, I would like to thank you for participating in the 2013 LifeLink Faces of Transplantation Calendar & Annual Report. This is an important educational tool that we utilize with medical professionals and the public.

I wanted to let you know that you have been selected to be featured in the “Faces of Transplantation 2013” Calendar. I submitted the nomination information after meeting you and reading your compelling book.
The “Faces of Transplantation” calendar is an annual publication that is distributed throughout Georgia, Florida, and Puerto Rico featuring transplant recipients.

Your story is so powerful and I hope you continue to share your story with other Churches and go to as many places as possible – to share this good news! You are a very powerful speaker and so many people can benefit from hearing not only your story, but the statistics that
you bring with your story. I decided this year will be the year I start loosing weight and getting back into shape. I’m 57, retired from the Navy in 1993 and about 25 pounds overweight.
Me and my wife have started eating more fruits and vegetables but have to get the physical thing going. So your story will helped motivate me (and my wife) further to continue
to push, get out and walk, eat healthier, and see the doctor on a regular basis.
So thanks again for coming today. May God continue to bless you and your wife. And may you continue to talk on this subject and be financially blessed for the “second” chance “you” are giving others – by telling people what they can do to change their own health!!!
