This life-saving procedure has saved countless lives, but finding a suitable donor can be a challenging and time-sensitive process.

Kelly’s story highlights the critical need for organ transplantation and the life-changing impact it can have for patients suffering from liver disease. Individuals who are interested in becoming a live donor for Kelly or wish to support her in her search can reach out to her through the social media platforms where her husband, Rob, is sharing updates. Her case underscores the importance of organ donation in saving lives and emphasizes the need for increased awareness and support for individuals awaiting life-saving transplants.
