Havalah Kolb

Organ & Tissue, Treatment, Wisconsin

BloodCenter 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.
