Warter Strong

February 2019

These past few years have proven to be a roller coaster of emotions and life-changing events for my family.  We have been pushed to really live the term Warter Strong to the fullest...

And while life has had its ups and downs, we continue to live each day with gratitude and choose to carry on the spirit of those we have loved and lost by "doing happy" everyday.

What began as a name for a donor circle created in honor of Oren has become a full fledged 501(3)(c) charitable organization called Warter Strong (www.warterstrong.org).  We are so proud to carry on the legacy of Oren and our son Ryan by our mission to "do happy" every single day. 

Thus far, we have raised over $52,000, have added nearly 1,000 donors to the registry, matched 16 people and had 3 people go to transplant.  The numbers are astonishing.  Literally, they bring chills as we think about the impact those early days have had over the past few years and will continue to unfold over years to come.

Thank you so much to our incredible network of incredible famiy and friends and community near and far who have supported us through our harder times and celebrated with us in our lighter days. We are able to achieve our mission to "do happy" and grow our intentions of helping others with your ongoing support.

Looking forward to more matches, and more happy times for many more people, for many years to come.

With love and gratitude always,

Barbara


2014 Written by Barbara Warter, in gratitude and reflection of her family's journey.

"These past few months have been filled with a range of emotions so varied and so deep. Our family has been pushed to the limits and even beyond. It has just been a long, crazy ride. 

But, we are strong (yes “Warter Strong”). 

My children are amazing and loving and show more resiliency than most adults I know. For those of you who donated your time, your cheek cells and your money, we cannot thank you enough.  Because of you, we have been able to add hundreds of new donors into the Gift of Life Marrow Registry and the financial means to help fund nearly 200 more donors.  Those numbers are astonishing. All it takes is one person to save someone's life.  All it takes is one person to change someone's world.  I literally get choked up as I picture the long term impact Warter Strong has made and the legacy this drive will create for years to come.  I pray for many many beautiful matches and wonderful happy stories for families all around the world.

Much love and most sincere gratitude,

Barbara, Oren, Ryan, Zach & Jake Warter
