Astellas Awards Educational Scholarships to Six Transplant Recipients Who Embody the Spirit of Giving Back
Date:9/22/2009

nsplant recipient from Eagle, WI

In March 2009, Brianne Catarozoli was diagnosed with a rare liver disease, and though she had been a seemingly healthy college student, her condition quickly deteriorated until she was in danger of losing her life. Fortunately, on April 7, Brianne received a lifesaving liver transplant. Because she almost lost her dream of becoming a teacher, Brianne is now even more determined to achieve her dream and complete her degree. As a teaching professional, she plans to share her story and educate families on the importance of organ donation and the miracle of transplantation.

Jessica Chipkin, liver transplant recipient from Kinnelon, NJ

Following a lifesaving liver transplant at age 21, Jessica Chipkin returned to college to finish her undergraduate degree and then began a career in advertising. She also actively volunteers with the American Liver Foundation, the New York Organ Donor Network and in a local hospital's transplant department. Her hands-on work with transplant recipients inspired her to switch careers, and she is now enrolled in post-graduate studies to become a social worker.

Patrice Fisher, heart and kidney transplant recipient from Southaven, MS

Patrice Fisher was pursuing a bachelor's degree in political science when she was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and end-stage renal disease. Thankfully, she received a heart and kidney transplant in September 2008. Patrice's second chance at life inspired her to change her educational path and she will soon begin a nursing program to become an advanced practice nurse specializing in cardiology/nephrology for transplant recipients.

Julie Hotze, liver transplant recipient from Teutopolis, IL

After undergoing two liver transplants in 1990, Julie Hotze wanted to reciprocate the kindness offered by her donor families by volunteering in her
