The Story Behind the Socks

As some of you have seen my Facebook page and Twitter have been filled with photos of people wearing Christmas socks and the hash tag says: #ChristmasSocksForBeccaA  Here is the story of the Christmas socks (as told by my mom) and how it all got started 21 years ago. 

Several years ago our precious Rebecca had heart surgeryAlthough the operation went well an unexpected complication occurred and she was not expected to live. The second day on life support (ECMO) one of the nurses, fighting desperately to save Becca’s life bought her a pair of Christmas socks and put them on her tiny motionless feet. This “Angel” said the socks were to give her something to look forward to…for us her family, they were a gift of sincere Caring and true Hope.

Please wear Christmas socks as a reminder that Love is Alive
And All Around, to Never Give Up Hope, and Miracles Do Happen.

Now as I gear up for my transplant journey, we invite you to wear Christmas Socks, take a photo of yourself and post it on social media with #ChristmasSocksForBeccaA at the end of the photo.

We also invite you to donate to http://cotaforbeccaa.com/ to help us raise money for transplant related expenses that will be out of pocket since the insurance cannot cover everything. Thank you for all of your love and support!

Hope and Love,
Becca
