How do I start to say #thankyou? To point out my appreciation for saving my life? Tomorrow I fly to Baltimore to get my #kidneytransplant. It’s due to you that is taking place. My life is eternally modified due to you. @Amaud_WD @TDianeD @Ravens @NFLPAFmrPlayers #RavensFlock #nfl pic.twitter.com/9onm4UqfTP
