“I am deeply grateful to the Flood Sisters Kidney Foundation – their work is the reason I’m still able to pick up the phone and speak to one of my closest friends, Jerry Edelstein. With the knowledge they gained during the fight for their father’s life, Jennifer, Cynthia and Heather Flood created a life-saving organization to help others. That’s the epitome of “paying it forward” and now, on behalf of Jerry, I dedicate tonight’s performance to help raise funds for the Flood Sisters’ work and raise awareness about living donors”. – Jon Bon Jovi
(Flood Sisters Benefit with Jon Bon Jovi and Friends, March 4th 2018, Tarrytown Music Hall).
“Just a few words of praise and thanks to the Flood Sisters Kidney Foundation. They have helped so many through the years, including my dear friend and attorney Jerry Edelstein. You have earned my trust and respect”.
– Dolly Parton

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
