Patrick O'Grady of Altadena, CA

At 37 years of age I was gainfully employed, newly married, and awaiting the arrival of my first child. In January, my liver which had been failing slowly, started to fail quickly. In March facing what perhaps were my final days, I got "the call". A liver match had been located and was on it's way to the hospital. After 10 and a half hours of surgery, I been my recovery. The change was immediate, my color returned as day by day, I slowly regained my strength. In May, I was back home. In July, my wife gave birth to our amazing, beautiful daughter. In September I was back to work. We are forever gratefully to our donor family for making the life-changing decision to help others.
