Jill Patient Story


The Power of Living Donation

Jill’s father’s liver was failing and he was on the transplant waiting list. However, with over 15,000 people on the list for a liver transplant, he was looking at a potentially very  long wait. Because she knew that living-donor liver transplants were possible she volunteered to be tested.

Luckily she was a match but the decision to undergo surgery was not easy. She had to find a way to save her father’s life while juggling her career and family.

Because she had the full support of her family, in April 2007, Jill was able to donate a portion of her liver to her father. They both had successful surgery through UPMC Transplant services.

Jill will always remember the gift she gave her father and believes that people need to know about living donor transplants and the life-saving power they hold.
