A Regeneration Journey

Sharing lives is at the heart of our human experience. This reality is unfolding today as my friend Tim embarks on a transformative journey, fueled by an altruistic act of unparalleled compassion by Beth. As a living liver donor, she is sharing a part of her liver with him and literally giving Tim a new lease on life.

Beth’s choice springs from the well of generosity. She yearns to give someone, like Tim, more days to live. She honors her mother’s memory with this act, reminding herself and all of us about the preciousness of time and the profound impact one person can have on another’s life. “My mother taught me generosity of spirit through her deeds and actions. It carries on through mine. I am humbled and honored to be able to make an impact on someone’s life, especially someone who is using his life to help save the lives of others.”

Tim has a unique talent for building purposeful communities and has always been a pioneer. And after he heals, he will take his vision of creating, a platform that helps others find a living donor, to new heights. Beth’s gift does more than help Tim. It amplifies his ability to connect more people. And will ultimately, save and enrich many more lives.

The Regeneration Journey

Life, by its very essence, is a constant dance of change. Just as the seasons shift, so do we. We flow and evolve, continuously interacting with one another.

As Beth and Tim start on this journey together, many of us hold our breaths, hoping for the best. We send heartfelt wishes for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery. Health is everything and connections are foundational as we lift each other up in the new world that we are co-creating through our conscious actions.

This is a powerful testament to human connection. It reminds us that we’re always interacting, connecting, and sometimes disconnecting when people and situations are unhealthy. But when we connect with…
