Stories of hope

James, liver recipient

James and his wife visiting UNOS

James received a liver transplant July 17, 2013. Every year following his annual December checkup, James and his wife Janis visit UNOS and the Trees of Life to pay tribute to his donor and to thank UNOS for making the lifesaving match. In 2017, James visited the Organ Center and those behind the scenes who made his transplant possible. “I can’t thank all of you enough.”
