Eric De La Cruz has a shot at life because people on social networking sites rallied behind his sister’s plea for help.  Veronica appeared on The Mike and Juliet Show today telling the story.   A stat was offered up that 17 people die each day in America waiting for a transplant.  It took Eric 5 years and a diagnosis of weeks to live before he was finally able to get the help he needed.

You can keep current on Eric’s story at these links:


In 2006, the U.S. census reported that 45 million Americans have no health insurance.

(Listening to the lack of progress being made by Congress each day on healthcare has just been revolting.)

  1. Listen, you have contributed to this wonderful thing. If no one else has said it enough, you should be congratulated in your own right.

    I am glad that good things have happened for your friend with this movement.

  2. Thanks, Broke, Cookie, and Katherine. It’s going to be a story I tell for the rest of my life. Veronica moved a mountain. Veronica proved love can save. How could I not be moved? 🙂
