Where did you hear about Transplant Friends?
I googled a question and this site popped up.
Are You Male or Female?
Share - which illness led up to you needing a transplant?
A very rare autoimmune disease that attacked my bile ducts which resulted in a large mass. The mass was first thought to be cholangiocarcinoma, but it was soon found to be benign. However, it blocked blood flow to my liver and gradually destroyed it.
Which Organ(s) did you receive? If you are on the waiting list, please share.
A liver ❤️ One on May 23, 2016 AND another 6 days later on May 29, 2016!!
Drugs, vitamins, favorite foods
Cheese, Coffee, Strawberries, Cheese, Oranges, Cheese, and more cheese! Also, I don't like meat or Reese's peanut butter cups since my transplant. I am on too many meds to list off.
How many years have you had your Transplant for?
I am Interested in Transplant Friends because...
I would love to connect with those who have undergone transplant because, in my opinion, relating with people is some of the best medicine there is!!!
Which Transplant Center has or will perform your life saving surgery?
Children's Hospital of Wisconsin
Share how your transplant experience changed your life?
I am so grateful for my donors and their selflessness. I want to honor them by becoming a pediatric nurse. Life is so precious, and I thank God for every moment.

I am 19, but I received my first liver transplant when I was 17 on May 23, 2016, which unfortunately formed clots. I also had a a PE and the doctors thought I was going to die many times. I was immediately placed at a status 1A and I received a second liver transplant May 29, 2016!!
