Bug Hug #1: Meet Nicole

  Bug Hug #1: Meet Nicole Litz

 I am happy to say, it did not take long to find a recipient for the BugHug.

Meet Nicole Litz, a young lady with CF. Like me, she was in a desperate situation before she got her transplant, she was very sick and in the ICU on a ventilator.
She is from central Pennsylvania, about 4 hours away from Pittsburgh. She did great with her transplant and is a great person with great family support.

You can tell from her smile how happy she was to get the bughug (and surprised).

 This is a Digital Scrapbook Page I made for my "post transplant scrapbook"

This first bag was made possible through many donations from friends and family members who believed in my project and who support me & love me! Do you want to help fill more BUG HUG's? I have 2 more bags in stock ready to fill, I just need donations from whoever wants to be a part of this project. BUG HUG #2 will be a blue duffel bag with items for a guy. The 3rd BUG HUG will be Pink and will be for a woman. You can get more details and get information on how you can help at jamiebug.com
Each bag costs about $500. Items I try to include are an electronic tablet, handmade blanket, variety of gift cards, lotion, personal hygiene items, a robe, and anything else that might make recovery a little better/easier.

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
