We hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones.
On October 9, we hosted our inaugural golf outing and we are excited to announce that, thanks to the generosity of our attendees and sponsors, and despite the inclement weather, we raised nearly $8,000 to support The Wave Set’s mission of spreading awareness and educating on the importance of organ donation.
Photographer Aaron Diamond was kind enough to capture the day as the event unfolded. To view and share photos from the outing, click here.

Where has the time gone?! Today, 2/11/17, marks our three year liver transplant anniversary. Although at times it seems like a lifetime ago, in reality it really hasn’t been that long since we were anxiously waiting in pre-op, excited to embark on the next chapter of our lives. The gratitude we feel today is due to the love and support we continue to be surrounded by, and we thought today would be a great opportunity to share some updates with you.
This past weekend we were fortunate enough to be part of an incredible event, the Save Jon Game Changer Gala at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, PA. We humbly shared the room with inspiring and influential individuals supporting the quest for a cure for primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC), including football legend, “Coach” Mike Ditka, and documentary filmmaker, James Redford.
Wishing you the happiest of holidays this season from everyone at The Wave Set! As 2015 comes to a close, we'd like to take the opportunity to provide you with a quick update on our progress this year, as well as a look at our plans for 2016.
Here at The Wave Set we are working tirelessly on discovering ways to not only celebrate and cherish life, but more importantly ways to save lives. We cannot do it alone. Here are a few simple things you can do to help us.
Life is moving so fast that oftentimes we begin lose track of the present moment. The start of the new year is a perfect reminder to not only slow down, but also reflect back on all we’ve been through.
It is with great pleasure and excitement that we present you all with the trailer for our documentary, “65 PERCENT”! Feel free to share it with your friends, family, and peers. Be sure to tag us on social media @thewaveset and use the hashtag #65PERCENT to show your continued support and keep the momentum moving.
My mind is expanding and my desire to learn is becoming imminent. I’m fascinated by literature I would have never before found the least bit appealing. Perhaps it’s a byproduct of this new self I’m evolving into each day. Or maybe it’s just that I’m steadfast on becoming a better version of myself.
I have always felt as if the saying, “everything happens for a reason” held true, but I struggled for quite some time in recognizing the how and why behind this statement. After awakening my consciousness through personal experiences, I have recognized that it is due to this sense of “universal oneness” that everything does indeed happen for a reason.
It has been about 3 and a half months since the transplant surgery and for the first time in a while, I’m beginning to feel like myself again. I have learned a great deal from this experience, but one thing in particular is the fact that most of us take the simpler things in life for granted far too often.
The past few weeks have allowed us the opportunity to share our story with hundreds of people. Our love for communication, through all various forms, is evolving with the our ability to meet new people at all of our recent engagements.
At 7PM Eastern time, on Channel 7 in the NY Metro Markets, we will officially be making our TV Debut when ABC’s Emmy Winning Show, “Organ Donors: Connected For Life”, when it opens up it’s 2014 episode with the story of our family.
f you were to look up the word “Caregiver” in the dictionary you would find the following definition: a person who cares for someone who is sick or disabled. If I were to ask you to give your own personal definition, you might give a response similar to that.
It’s not everyday that you get to be a part of an event as special as the one we were last night. For months I went on about my business, and every time I made a new calendar appointment I would see “Shop For Riley” 6:00PM April 10th! Well, I could not help but feel like that specific event would stand out amongst all of the others and now I know why.
This past Tuesday, March 11th, marked one-month from the day of our transplant surgery. Looking back on these past few weeks, we’ve all experienced a wealth of emotions ranging from our usual laughs to some unexpected cries.
