Sunshine Letter | Liver transplant hopeful thanks family, community

TRUCKEE, CALIF. — Looking for liver!

I would like to thank everyone who donated in many ways to my health, while waiting to secure a liver transplant in order to save my life. I will not survive without a transplant, and my family and community have helped in a variety of ways.

Thanks to my mom and dad; son and daughter Josh and Val for their selfless, continued support; grandson Jordan for being the sunshine of my life; Wayne King, who helped build my basement apartment; the town of Floriston for a fundraising benefit, Tahoe Forest Hospice Thrift for giving me purpose; Tahoe Forest Health System, the docs and caregivers there; Kay and David Rully; Karen and Jerry; and the individuals who donated through National Foundation for Transplants (NFT) at

It is a special gift to reside in this family oriented, caring community. Thank you for you kind support.

Sincerely, Tammy Anagnos

Floriston, Calif.
