for our POTS warriors

Standing Up to POTS is proud to receive memorial contributions in the name of postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) warriors who want to help others with POTS even in their death.  Memorial contributions go directly into the Standing Up to POTS Research Fund, which awards grants to top POTS researchers worldwide.  More research needs to be done into the causes of POTS, effective treatment options, and ways to improve the quality of life for those suffering from POTS. We appreciate the trust that families put in us to be a part of finding those answers.

In Memory of Shari Ann (Kincaid) Fout 1972-2018

I Am Free

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
To follow the path God made for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call.
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To love, to laugh, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
For I found peace at last, that day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembering joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with hearts of sorrow.
My wish for you is the hope of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I’ve savored much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed much too brief,
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wants me now --- He’s set me free.
