Thank you
Watching you today on OWN. Thank you for sharing your journey Ava. I have cried and cried watching your story, pulling for you and your family. Having been on the other side - sudden death of a loved one - and the choice to donate organs made the saddness of the loss a small celebration. Knowing that Jim was still in some way walking, talking, breathing and seeing have made us feel connected to others. Knowing that in our moment of sorrow that it was a moment of joy for others was a beautiful thing. God bless you Ava and may your family known peace.

Just watched the documentary on OWN. I am a social worker who works is palliative and hospice care and had found Eva's blog several years ago before she died and followed it ever since. I have her Celebration of Love poem taped on my bathroom mirror where I see it every day. It moves me still today as much as the first time I read it. I think Eva is a loving, vibrant, and as much alive in Spirit as she ever was in person. She is an inspiration and her love lives on.

I watched it, and I lost it at the end. I've read Eva's journal many times, from start to finish. It didn't feel real until the end of the documentary, when Eva's death was talked about.

She was a warrior wrapped in a whirlwind of energy. I know she fought a long, hard battle with CF, and she never, ever gave up. She has inspired so many people to becoming organ donors. Her body may be gone but her spirit is still strong.

I am so grateful to Eva and all who loved and helped her be such a strong & inspiring person. Also grateful to OWN for running this spectacular film (and told them so). I learned a lot more about CF and the struggles that go with it. I am a proud organ donor and encourage all I know to do so as well.

Bless you all! LoveLoveLove!!!

65redroses documentary
Just wanted to say how compelling Eva's story was and how much I appreciated her courage and generousity of spirit in telling her story. I don't know too much about CF but her story and the other girls tales made me want to know more and to help in ways I can. Thanks to OWN for airing this documentary. God bless you all and thanks so much.

I just watched this movie.....WOW!
I just watched this documentary and am so upset that Eva lost her life in the end. I am so thankful and happy that she did get the transplant and was able to live those 2 years doing new things and loving life. She is such a beautiful soul and person. I feel like I got to know her very personally.

Thank you Eva for starting this movement. My daughter who is 12 and I really talked about Organ Donation and what we can do to spread the word. We are going to work on our own mini campaign to talk with kids her age about the importance of it.

You are awesome and even though I didn't meet you personally, I love love love you.

#4Eva is my new Hero!!

I watched Eva's documentary yesterdy. it broke my heart. My husband and I both had tears at the end. I just want you to know that your daughter is such an inspiration to me. I have been feeling depressed and Eva's documentary made me realize how fortunate I am. I am going to tell all my friends and family to watch her story because it is such an inspiration.
Thank you so much for sharing her life with us

What Strength!!
I was amazed. The curage she had. I was so glad she shared such a private part of her life for us all to be inspired and to help us remember that Life is a precious gift and it is too short.

doc on OWN
Watched EVA's documentary on OWN twice. Makes me feel ashamed because I have smoked for 45 years and my lungs are damaged Im sure. I did it to myself, while Eva was born with her lung disease and never had the chance I have. It's given me alot to think about thats for sure and was very moving.

I was so surprised to see this on OWN the other day! Eva is so beautiful. What a great film!

May Eva's message never die and may her spirit live on in the many, many lives she touched!
Blessings and peace to her family

I began to read Eva's journal before she died and watched her memorial service. A couple of nights ago I was channel surfing and *bam* there it was....65 Red Roses. What a beautiful girl - now an equally beautiful spirit. Thank you for sharing her with all of us....

65 Red Roses
Im so glad to see a documentary to get the word out on CF. Like everyone else, I lost it at the end. Unfortunately, I knew what the outcome was gonna be. I'm a RN and took care of the adult CF patients. I loved my CF patients and their families. I got to see first hand what they went through. I went to numerous funerals and it was always so heartbreaking. I had many patients like Eva who were strong and optimistic. They had so much strength and courage. I plan on purchasing the DVD. CF is one of the causes I'm very passionate about. I hope this documentary will help encourage others.

Firstly, I would like to thanks OWN for this film. Everyone should give out something nice and meaningful to the world like Eva so that someone’s life can change forever in a good way. Highly appreciable.
