  69. Celia Rae Ferrier says:

    We are born on the same day, Linden. One year apart. For some reason before l knew anything about this fund l felt moved to wish you happy birthday in Bright Lifers. Since the summer time l have felt like a group consciousness has grown in BLE because each time l have a need or question or inner prompt Susan comes out with a vlog or It question is asked by someone else on a call. Someone l feel as if you have been on my mind, even though we have never met. Uncanny. So, to a fellow artist, Canadian and BL friend, this comes with deepest love and joy that you will have a beautiful set of fingers made just for you.

  70. Monica Torregrosa says:

    Dear Linden, I was so moved by your story and it got me to tears. You are such an incredible artist and I pray that your dream to get a beautiful and full working hand will come through. By the way, Happy Birthday lovely Linden. I had the honor to talk to you on the Boot Camp weekly coaching calls. God bless you for giving so much of your time to all of us. May you receive it 1000 time back, you really deserve it. I hope you will soon travel to London. I wish I could come and visit you, as I’m only 1 flight hour away (Switzerland). With all my love, Monica

  75. Annie Trovato Chapman says:

    Done. Not a moment’s hesitation about this. You have been a beautiful inspiration Linden.I feel blessed to have an opportunity to pay back a small piece of the kindness and love you have shown. May all the love you have put out into the universe come back to you a million times and may you feel every bit of it! <3

  83. Jane Holmes says:

    Interesting how we are connected by this amazing internet and all that can be accomplished through it. I pray that this event will be the inspiration for much goodwill on many fronts. We have skills and abilities that the world needs to know about and share. Thank you for all that you give. Thank you to Susan who has taken the initiative to help you.

  88. Louise Debreczeny says:

    Please know that you are whole already as your wholeness comes from your soul, not your body. Having said that, I am delighted to help you gain greater function in your body and enhance your self-esteem. With all my love, Louise

  89. Amy Brislen says:

    Happy Birthday, Linden! I hope you get everything you want for your birthday. I’m happy to be part of a community in which, when something like this comes up, people say how can I help? Full disclosure: I only was able to take $50 out of my savings account so it’s not the $100 SPT mentioned but I was glad to have the opportunity to do something and I know others will make up the difference. Thanks for letting me be a part of this! Love to you.

    Happy birthday, we share the same birthday, so you must be an incredible spirit. Much success

  104. Nitya says:

    So happy you will be having new fingers. Your tangible love and support has been so important in my BL journey. It’s a pleasure to be able to send some back to you.

    A fellow Vancouverite……

  108. Nili Marcia says:

This is the least I can do. How very lovely that the second half of your life will be filled with so much excitement and even more transformation!

  112. Donna McAdams says:

    Liden, You are beautiful and generous and so talented! I am inspired by your story. I know that you know you are already complete. But I can imagine how difficult it is to be “different” to have to hide, to just want to feel normal. I hope this new hand will give you peace at last.
    Donna McAdams.

  113. Rosie in Coquitlam, BC says:

    As a fellow Vancouver girl ( ok technically I’m in Coquitlam), your story touched me. I haven’t signed up for the boot camp and can’t seem to sign up for no sugar and no flour for the rest of my life, but I watch Susan’s vlog faithfully and she always gives me hope, inspiration and courage and only good things happen from that – like this story about you. Susan’s heart is huge and her generosity is again, like Susan herself, inspiring.
    Enjoy your beautiful new hand. You deserve it. With Canadian love,
    Rosie

    PS As a bit of an artist myself I would love to meet you in person with that new accessory one day.

  114. Jane Anderson Gitter says:

    Linden,
    A little over a year ago you spent time on the phone with me explaining your Minimalist Food Plan and because of that conversation I am in my right sized body and enjoying life like I never imagined it to be. I hope to see you this summer at The Family Reunion and say hello. Wishing you all the best with this endeavor. This is Your Time!
    Seize it!!

  115. Kim Davids Mandar says:

  124. Bernhard says:

    Dear Linden,

    Hi Linden, Happy Birthday! You and Marrianne were coaches for my bootcamp last year at Heartwood House. Thanks for all your hard work. Please know that God does not make mistakes. He gets the blames for everything even when people claim to be Atheists. Crazy! Search out Joni Eareckson Tada, A quadriplegic with a wonderful story of freedom in Christ, God’s son. As I listened to Susan talk about you and your many skills and talents, I realized all over again that people can become so much more in spite of their afflictions. I pray one day you’ll know Jesus. God bless you.

  137. Misty says:

    I am so glad Susan told your story and asked for help. I hope you reach your goal soon. I can tell you are a great person from everyone’s comments and you deserve this!

  154. Lisa Houde says:

    Linden! Happy Birthday, dear one – that’s first. Second, I’d like to let you know a few of the reasons I’m donating to this project. 1. I’m SUPER new to BLE, but I’ve already had a question and answer with you on a phone calls; I’m the herbalist who asked about honey as medicine. You were beautifully helpful, so thank you. 2. I already ADORE Bright Line Eating and all it’s accompanying ideas; I love how you embody all that Bright Line Eating IS. Thank you for your dedication; even in the one phone call, I could feel your compassion and gentle manner. 3. I had meningitis when I was 14 months old; it was accompanied by septicemia which ultimately left me with large and very noticeable scars on my extremities; it was so hard to grow up with this – I was ostracized and excluded, but it made me strong, and I’m FINALLY getting to a place of self-love with the help of BLE. My parents and I decided to do some cosmetic surgery on my face, but my arms and legs will always be out there for the world to see. Can’t hide in warmer weather!

    Your story touched me deeply, and I raced home to donate to your cause; I get how you hid your hand, and even friends you’ve known for years don’t know about your fingers. This fundraising goal will be reached very soon, I know it. Wishing you the very best, Linden. Lots of love to you!

  155. Julie Adis says:

    Linden,

    Wishing you the best on this journey! So exciting and so deserving for such a kind-hearted and compassionate soul.

  193. Dawn Mitchell says:

    Hello Linden, I am probably the only one who doesn’t know you. I have not committed to the program, just signed up for the 14-day challenge but have not started it and don’t know if I will. I just like watching the weekly VLOGs and your story really touched me. I hope it ends up being all you hoped for and more. To be able to help someone fulfill a lifelong dream is really amazing. In fact, it is something I have dreamt of doing for a few years now (helping people who have always wanted to do something in life but just didn’t have the money). I just need to win the lotto first! But in the meantime, I am glad I could help out. May God bless you in your journey…

  194. Fabiola Tortajada says:

    Dear Linden,
    I’m glad to be part of this co-creation. I wish you the best and I hope you get the one you really like, they are remarkably outstanding. Much love and blessings your way. In light and love,

  237. Diane Lamé says:

    Dearest Linden,

    You have been an inspiration to me by how you live and share your life. I’ve copied many of your posts because they spoke to me. I certainly relate to having a gimpy left hand. Decades ago I had a rare form of cancer in my left arm and because of radiation have experienced chronic pain in my hand for years and in the last two years much less function from the nerve damage caused by radiation and a second surgery after a reoccurrence. I’m disabled yet don’t want to feel different. I too hide the fact I can’t use my left hand fully. Having to give up my passion for cooking was challenging & I now type w/ only one hand (like you). I am happy that I’m able to help you in a small way achieve your dream. You deserve the very best life has to offer. I appreciate the open hearted woman that you are and the love that radiates from you. Enjoy every step of the new journey you’re taking. It’s thrilling to see your dream coming true. Thank you for all you do in BLE and for being a class act. 😘

  238. Nathalie Asmall says:

    So happy to be able to give something back to you in return for all the care you provide for us! Hope the new fingers will be all you expected and more!

  239. Susan says:

I look forward to meeting you at the family reunion and holding your hands.

  278. Thank you, Linden, for your graciousness on the coaching calls and very evident influence on the caring, supportive, ever-present, and knowledgeable staff for BLE. The support is outstanding and makes it all possible. I totally believe Susan’s description of you and your impact on all of us, even though I am only 7+ weeks in. I will so much enjoy following your progress in this most personal and creative project. I have a friend who has a similar issue with one hand. Though we have never discussed what it has meant to her to live her life with this difference, I may have the courage to ask her and give her the connection to the artist working with you!!! All the very best to you, dear Linden.

  279. Linden, you are such a blessing to all of us in BLE! It gives me great pleasure that I can give back to you. May you have a wonderful #61 Birthday and a Happy Thanksgiving. Thanks-giving is what you have taught all of us! ((HUGS))

  308. Julia Weiss says:

    As you step into the world, it greets you with an eye of scrutiny-many are the inner conversations to convince your tender heart that you are not to be set apart for any cause. As a person depending on crutches for mobility I have a collection the coolest crutches. They help me transcend those eyes that scrutinize. May your hand adorn you with dignity and enjoy “owning” your anomaly.

  309. Kathryn Lively says:

    Dear Linden,

    Happy Birthday – I have such gratitude and respect for you and everything that you are and bring to this community. I hope that this new hand – in all of its beautiful, feminine, and artistic glory – brings you peace and pleasure for many, many years to come.

    Although I don’t know you Linden, nor am I a member of Bright Line Eating, I have been following Susan online for a while. She’s doing some great work (as are you so I’ve heard), and I have come to trust her enough to respond when she makes a request such as this one. I hope this new extension brings you a lifetime of happiness. Sounds like it is well deserved. :o)

  332. Penny Atkinson says:

    Hello Linden, I am thrilled and honoured to be able to help in this small way. You do so much for the Bright Line movement, and so you have changed my life so much for the better. Thank you 😊

  346. Susan Petty says:

    I live in El Paso TX and I see how so many war veterans return home missing significant parts of their bodies. While reading your story I suddenly felt how this type of prosthetic could change an individual from seeing themselves as broken to seeing themselves as whole again. I felt how this could touch the lost part of a persons soul. My wish for you is that this will be the missing piece of the puzzle.

  347. Jan Jennings says:

    Linden, I also am an artist (painting, drawing, fiber arts) and am in awe of what you have accomplished both in your artistic pursuits in the pictures Susan showed and also in Bright Line Eating. I am one of the people who listens to your and Marianne’s coaching calls every Wednesday and am now on Day 55 of BLE. Thank you for all that you continue to do in your life, and enjoy your wonderful, new prosthetic limb–here’s to contagious courage!

  348. Kathy Barns says:

    Linden, I so admire your bravery and your willingness to share what has been a source of pain for you for your entire life. I also admire your willingness to ask for help – that takes guts and hope, the kind of hope Monique talked about in today’s meditation. What I admire most of all though is the way you have succeeded in using your many talents in spite of the challenges you have faced. YOU TRULY ARE A ROCK STAR and an inspiration to us all. Happy Birthday from a fellow Canadian, Linden!!

  378. Kate says:

    Go Susan and Go Linden! As I write this you are within $1000 of your goal! Fantastic! Can’t think of a better Thanksgiving tribute than to this cause! I am not an official bright lifer but have followed Susan since the beginning, watched the videos and vlogs, bought her book, participated in the webinars, and have lost 35 pounds on my way to losing 50! Being part of this communnity even on the sidelines has been so inspirational! Happy Birthday Linden and to Susan…you have our trust…implicitly…always. Can’t wait to hear of and see Linden’s new fingers…thanks for allowing us to be part of this story. XOXO

    Although you may have felt inadequate, the LORD sees you perfectly made. HE does not make mistakes. HE has taken what the world may consider a flaw and makes it flawless.

You are one of those individuals. May the LORD continue to be your strength and inspiration.

I’m always amazed at these qualities the pour out of you while you’re coaching someone. I pray that your new hand will be everything you are dreaming it to be, and more. If we ever meet, I’ll teach you how to fingerspell your name in sign language.

    Hi Linden: So happy that you are going to receive your new hand!!
