The Transplant Experience at UVA

Liver Transplant
Liver Transplant Patient

A New Liver at 33

Leslie Waller was just 33 when she was diagnosed with a rare liver cancer. After some research, she realized a liver transplant was her best option to ensure the cancer wouldn't come back. Her doctor referred her to UVA surgeon Shawn Pelletier, MD

Leslie went on the transplant waiting list, and her husband was tested to see if he was a match.

How to Save a Life

You can save a life. You can even save several. By choosing to become an organ donor, you have the opportunity to share something thousands of other people wait for, daily.

Several types of donation exist. You can sign up to donate your organs and tissue once you're deceased. You can also donate to a friend or loved one. There are ways to help a loved one, even if you are not a match.
