Brothers Celebrate 10 Years Post Life-Saving Liver Transplant

Jared Wohl

Jared Wohl successfully donated 65 percent of his liver to his younger brother, Cameron – who was living with primary sclerosing cholangitis, a rare and chronic autoimmune disease – on February 11, 2014.

Founding The Wave Set in 2013 (now a Partner Fund of NJ Sharing Network), the brothers aimed to give others a second chance at life by spreading awareness on the importance of organ donation and helping create a culture of love, unity and selflessness, thus showing the world that “We Are Vital to Each other.”

Today, as they reflect on the last decade, Jared and Cameron continue to educate the public about the importance of organ donation and transplantation through The Wave Set. At the heart of their efforts stands the crowdfunded documentary 65 Percent, which launched on their shared birthday in 2016 following a film festival circuit. The documentary encapsulates the emotional and transformative journey of their living donor transplant experience, offering a powerful testament to the profound impact of organ donation.

The Wohl brothers’ story not only encapsulates the spirit of National Donor Day on February 14th – a day to recognize those who have given and received the gift of life through organ, eye and tissue donation, are currently waiting for a lifesaving transplant, and those who died waiting because an organ was not donated in time – but also serves as a timeless reminder of the importance of compassion and giving.
