Putting a spotlight on our livers, hearts and kidneys while sharing what it means to be an organ donor with my students AND celebrating my bestie Kristin Hall Christensen liver recipient 2019 💚

My Story

In 2019 my friend Kristin Hall Christensen needed a liver transplant. Although I was a match to be Kristin’s live donor, her illness progressed to quickly and she would end up needing a donor liver. Kristin received her liver, recovered and continues to lead a very full and productive life. Our friendship began when we were both teaching at the same elementary school. Kristin now teaches middle school and I am serving as a Librarian in another elementary school. We both, along with our families, continue to educate others about the importance of Organ Donation and sharing The Gift of Life.
