Liver Transplant Recipient Shares Inspiring Journey In Local Community’S Health.

Shreveport, Louisiana – In recognition of National Donate Life Month, a local man named Danny Deck, who underwent a liver transplant during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, has experienced a profound change in perspective and career. Initially diagnosed with end-stage liver disease, Deck was placed on a transplant waiting list in February 2020. However, due to the pandemic, his transplant was delayed until August. Astonishingly, he received the life-saving liver transplant on the same day Hurricane Laura made landfall, which prompted Deck to name his new liver “Laura.” Deck’s newfound lease on life has motivated him to pursue a career in nursing and provide care to transplant patients. He is currently enrolled as a nursing student at BPCC Community College and plans to participate in the upcoming transplant games this summer.
