“I am forever grateful for another chance of life that God granted me,” Cynthia says. “I am deeply appreciative of the family that chose to donate to save MY LIFE! I want people to know they should live their BEST life EVERYDAY! In addition, be thankful for the small things and to remember that EVERY DAY is a day of THANKSGIVING. I’ve been blessed!”

Cynthia is a native of Milwaukee and her true passion lies in caring for the elderly and senior population. She has a large extended family and a strong church family. She has one grandson, Jahi. Cynthia is in the process of completing a bachelor’s degree at Ottawa University. Her favorite song is Great Is Your Mercy, by Donnie McClurkin.
