Crowdfunding with Author, Jessica Carmel

Mel sits down with author and heart and kidney transplant recipient Jessica Carmel. Carmel was one of the first people to use crowdfunding to help pay for her kidney transplant surgery back in 2009. Jessica talks about how she wouldn't be here without crowdfunding, (specifically Ethan Austin at Giveforward) how she had to convince the hospital that the money was going directly towards her hospital bills and her upcoming book The Hearts of a Girl which is available by preorder now!
