CROWDRISING SINCE: Sep 20, 2012
Stuff About Me:

I was diagnosed with liver disease in 2006 with a cause of hereditary hemachromatosis, a blood disorder passed from parents to their children when both parents are carriers.  It causes organs to "rust" due to the high level of iron in the blood stream often 10-50% higher than normal.  I spent years trying different alternatives but was finally listed as a liver transplant candidate in 1/2009 and was transplanted with a "direct" donation on 10/3/09.  My first donor aka, my first hero, was a friend of a friend or a relative and his liver gave me life for 11 months.

My second hero donated what I hope is my now and forever liver on 9/17/10.  After a few complications and up hill battles, I am alive and well and celebrated my 46th birthday this month. My kids are all terrific students and talented athletes and with my friends and support system in tact, I am feeling really great. 

Thanks to the two people who signed their donor cards and their families who made the decision  to save lives of people like me, I am thriving and hopeful for a full life!  Donate LIfe!  Become and organ donor!  Kristen
