DiCristofaros, Circa 2018-the year that we found out that Marybeth was sick with failing kidneysDear Friends,
I hope you will consider supporting my participation in this event. All contributions will benefit my local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. Any contribution will help, and all donations are tax deductible.
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!  I was once very sick with failing kidneys, but I became one of Johns Hopkins’ miracles because of the gifted and talented Nephrologists, surgeons, nurses and child life specialists and everyone else who took great care of me and my father. I received my kidney from my father last June 8, 2020 in the middle of a pandemic, and it was so scary. I had to go in and out of the hospital so many times because of complications but Johns Hopkins always took good care of me and my family. Now I am a living witness to one of their miracles. I want to see more miracles happen and please note that no amount is too little for a sick child. God bless, and thank you so much in advance for your generosity and kindness #TransplantWarrior #MyDadmyHero #JesusmymiracleworkerandHealer.

He took the child by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum,” which means, “Little girl, I say to you, arise!” Mark 5:41

The Dome at Johns Hopkins. This is where miracles happen. We have gifted doctors, nurses, child life specialists, and everyone else. We are thankful and blessed to everyone who have kept me alive and healthy, and happy.

Healing Pilgrimage at Lourdes, France sponsored by the Order of Malta-the oldest lay religious Catholic Organization established since 1099. 🙏💕The trip that changed our lives forever.

This place was miraculous- the site behind us is where the healing spring waters  of Lourdes flow from. This is where St. Bernadette spoke to the Blessed Mother in 18 apparitions . A few days after we came back from our trip is when my Dad was declared to be my kidney donor.🙏🙏🙏💕💕💕

The day of the transplant was June 8, 2020- we all had to surrender and give everything to God. Truly an unforgettable miraculous day. It was in the middle of the Covid pandemic too. 8 hours of waiting for both surgeries to be done was the most difficult for my Mom and the entire family but we all felt the love of God thru our Johns Hopkins family🙏💕 relatives and friends near and far.

Thank you for all who have read my story and for all those who have donated. God bless you all and thank you for making miracles happen for other kids just like me❤️🙏 2 Corinthians 9:7 Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
