Liver Recipient Age 47 ~ Plainfield, IN Mom, former Special Needs Aid
Sponsored by Indiana Organ Procurement Organization (IOPO)
In September 2000, while attending her hometown's annual parade, Lynn Wingler Livingston donated blood at the blood mobile. The following week, Lynn received a letter from the Indiana Blood Center. It stated that her liver enzymes were highly elevated and she should see her doctor immediately. Lynn was diagnosed with a rare liver disease and would eventually need a liver transplant. On May 26, 2008 she finally received her call that a donor liver was available. Lynn is now three-and-a-half years post-transplant and says, "My life has changed forever!" She is a full-time volunteer for Indiana Organ Procurement Organization and Donate Life Indiana. "It's my mission to educate everyone I meet about the importance of donation," says Lynn.
