Astellas Awards Scholarships to 12 Transplant Recipients and Donors Who Embody Hope, Courage and Achievement

the University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. Kyla-Tana hopes to educate the public about organ donation through public relations and wants to take action to ensure no one has to wait for an organ transplant.

Tonisha Daniel, liver recipient from Dolton, ILTonisha was only 14 when she was diagnosed with Cirrhosis of the liver and told she needed a liver transplant. Prior to her diagnosis, Tonisha's family was largely unfamiliar with the organ transplantation process, so this inspired Tonisha to share her story and advocate for the importance of organ donation, enabling other families to learn from her situation. Leading up to her transplant in May 2004, Tonisha advocated alongside Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White, and following her transplant, continued to share her story while in college at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign by organizing health fairs and registering college students as organ donors. Tonisha is passionate about going to medical school and hopes to work at Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago, the same hospital where she received her transplant.

Michelle Davis, kidney recipient from Pensacola, FLOn Christmas morning, 2007, Michelle received a phone call that was life changing.  After enduring 18 years of end-stage renal disease, a kidney was available.  Her successful transplant led her to advocate for kidney health, healthcare reform and the need to financially assist kidney transplant patients with their immunosuppressant drugs.
