Beginning her life as a very unwell baby, who couldn’t do much but sleep all day, Renee received a life-saving liver transplant at the age of 3. Diagnosed with Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency, her transplant allowed her to recover very quickly.
“My new liver gave me the chance to just live life! My transplant has allowed me to be a kid, go to school, make friends, be a sister, a daughter, a cousin, a grandchild, and a niece. It’s allowed me to travel, fall in love, study, and start a career.”
Renee wants everyone to understand just how special organ donation is. “It’s such a limited amount of people that can actually donate, that’s why I believe we need to spread the word.”
To the donor who saved her life, her message is very simple – “Thank you. I love you.” #ThankYouDay #DoanteLife #Makeitcount
