Patient Connection

Brian's Story

Brian Martin had given up hope. For two years, he lived with the knowledge that his lifelong liver disease had finally caused his liver to fail. A transplant was his only hope of surviving to see his two kids grow into adults. On one particularly dark day, Martin called his pastor for support. A few hours later, the phone rang with the news: Martin’s care team had found a match.
