Versiti Blood Center of Wisconsin impacts the lives of patients every day, including patients like Havalah. She was diagnosed with a disease that prevents the bile ducts in the liver from developing normally. She received the amazing gift of a liver transplant just after her second birthday and today is doing well.
We continue to research ways to improve tissue matching for organ transplants, in order to find cures that can change a patient’s life forever.
Every 10 minutes, someone is added to the organ transplant waiting list.
Approximately 113,000 men, women, and children are waiting for life-saving organ transplants. One organ donor has the power to save up to eight lives and change the outcomes of someone’s world forever by giving them a second chance. Additionally, tissue donation can save and improve the lives of up to 75 people with their gifts. You can make a huge impact by registering as an organ and tissue donor.
