When A Bout With The Flu Requires A Hero

As a busy wife and mom, Theresa thought she would be over the flu in no time. When she continued to feel bad, even after multiple trips to the doctors, she suddenly found herself in a life-threatening situation. Theresa shares her story of acute liver failure and transplantation to where she is today.

Because an organ donor said “YES,” Theresa is here to care for her family and enjoy life.

The stories of our donor and recipient families are powerful, moving celebrations of life, hope, and love that get to the heart of why we do what we do, and the difference we can all make. Lifebanc believes that anyone can be a hero – and we see it every day in the generous decisions of people and families who choose and support organ and tissue donation. We’d like you to meet some of these heroes, and some of the Northeast Ohio neighbors they are helping.
