About Me: Please use this space to tell the community about you and your unique experience with transplantation:
I personally know a young lady the same age as my younger daughter who is waiting for a liver donor, and following her journey intently. I personally see the struggle of those who need transplants and have also seen the need for public education regarding donation. Many myths surround donation that, with education, will be dispelled.
