Elaine: Liver Transplant Recipient

Six days after transplant, Elaine walked out of the hospital and went on with her normal life. She says, "That's the kind of job they did."

The video was filmed at the annual Dash for Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness, a run/walk that Elaine participated in to honor organ and tissue donors, celebrate organ and tissue recipients and recognize those who continue to wait for a life-saving transplant.
