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.

"Five years ago, I received a liver transplant at MGH. All of the people there were wonderful. Now, I go back once a year and have labs every 3 months at my local hospital. If not for MGH and my pcp, I'd have been dead long ago."
