National Organ & Tissue Donation Awareness Week – Story #1


No comments

Laura (left) writes, “My incredible friend Nyssa (right) donated the entire right lobe of her liver to me in a life-saving living donor liver transplant in Edmonton on March 22, 2017. I suffered from PSC – a rare, autoimmune liver & bile duct disease that has no treatment and no cure except liver transplant. She saved my life, gave my three daughters back their mother and my husband also got his wife back. We are both doing great a year later, and her selflessness and courage is something that continues to guide me every day. Nyssa is a hero. She literally saved my life. She deserves to win EVERY prize as far as I’m concerned!”
