In the year 2010 a loved one was told they had months to live unless they received a new liver. Nine people came forward to be a potential live donor.

One person can save up to 8 lives and make a difference to dozens of others Even though the number of transplants were up in 2012. Almost 100 people died in 2012. Think about that 100 deaths and a hundred circles of family and friends and how they were affected. I would not want anyone to go through this
