Liz Venderbos

Living Liver Recipient

"When you're going through something like liver disease, or a death in family – or both – it's so important to remind yourself that you're not alone. There are other people out there going through the same thing. And when you share what you're going through, it will shock you how many people will show up to ask 'what can I do? How can I help?' It’s very humbling."
