My second chance

My thanks go to my liver team and donor family who have given me a second chance at life.

I was diagnosed with a rare auto immune illness at the age of 14.

The doctors did not know much about my illness, it was all trial and error when it came to medication.

I've been battling the illness for 11 years. This year my health turned for the worst and I was in hospital frequently.

I got a call to say that they found a possible donor and I was transplanted the next day.

My surgery was successful and I am currently recovering well and looking forward to starting my new life.

My thanks go to my liver team and donor family who have given me a second chance at life.
