After finding a living kidney donor for my son on a National Website, I wanted to start a local Website, so that others who were in need of a transplant in our community could have a place to put their profile in hopes that someone would see it and possibly save their life. A very tall order. Cathy designed a site that was tasteful, organized, easy to use and most of all successful. We needed just the right logo and Cathy’s imagination and talent created a distinctive logo.”  - - Jeanette Ostrom
