Dear Friends,

The family & friends of Mickey Gallagher would appreciate any donations toward our Donor Awareness / Gift of Life event. The 10th Annual “Keep the Beat” event will be held 10/02/2011 at Finnegan’s Wake in Philadelphia.
Keep the Beat was Mickey’s dream to bring donor awareness to as many people as possible. He was in the process of planning the first event, but unfortunately did not have the chance to see it come to life. Mickey had a need and a passion to spread word of the impact on the lives of the people who receive the ultimate gift (the Gift of Life). He spoke at many events to tell his story of how grateful he was to his unknown angel (his heart donor), and her family, and to let everyone know of the importance of discussing the issue with people you love! He struggled his whole life and finally received his heart on November 9th, 1998. We were very fortunate to have him for three more years. He was an extraordinary person, and we will live by his example.

“Keep the Beat” is a Donor Awareness event benefitting the “Gift of Life” organization and the University of Penn Transplant House. You can contact us through Friends of Mickey Gallagher on Facebook, or call us at either (856) 547-5791, or (201) 927-5716. Thank you for your support!

Thank You,

Mickey’s Friends & Family
