Back in June I mentioned that my new friend Jihan (who invited me to her lovely book club in L.A.) needs a new heart (my guess is the girl wore out the old one with much use) and was waiting to get on the transplant list. As of Sept. 12, she made it on the list! A heart transplant is something no person can undergo alone. She needs your prayers and good wishes. And also your financial support. The National Kidney Foundation estimated (back in 1998) that the first-year costs for a heart transplant are $311,000.
