Hi! I know my posts have been very limited over the past year. My amazing wife Stacey Merwin and I went through a very difficult pregnancy and had to focus all of our energy on that. Luckily, we found a great team of doctors and now have two perfectly healthy babies, Jack & Samantha Merwin! This has given me a new perspective on the film and reaffirmed the power that it can have for transplant families. Over the past few weeks I've been able to start working on the film again and will be posting a new trailer! We really appreciate everyone's support on the film and I look forward to using your generosity to help save lives.

All my best,
Josh
