Who is The Georgia Transplant Foundation?

Over half a million donated:
The Georgia Transplant Foundation’s (GTF) work never stops, people never stop having the need for organ transplants so neither will our fundraising! In nine short years, Angels of Life has donated over $620k to the Georgia Transplant Foundation through the efforts of Three-13’s in-salon Bakes Sales, selling $5 Angels in-salon, and of course the Event which is supported by local business and organizations through sponsorship. The Georgia Transplant Foundation is focused on providing both financial, educational, and back to work assistance during a time that is often overwhelming for those children and adults waiting or undergoing a transplant. GTF is dedicated to improve the quality of life for those affected by transplantation. We hope you will join our Angels Team by sponsoring.

What is our Inspiration?
Lester E. Crowell Jr., our Managing Partner and two-time heart transplant recipient fought his entire life living with IHSS (Idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis) and at the age of 43, he received his first heart transplant when his native heart could no longer fight. Following his first transplant, Lester was living healthy and well, feeling better than ever before. However, after nine-years the transplanted heart developed chronic rejection, similar to coronary artery disease, a common threat to all transplanted organs… He was put on the transplant list again, living with a new daily fear of suffering a possible massive heart attack. On December 3, 2010 Lester received the life changing call that a new heart was found and was waiting for him. After a successful second transplant, Lester woke up inspired and full of gratitude… this is when Angels of Life was born. His passion to help others in the transplant community has become a life mission.
