al worker when her family learned that her mother was ill with hepatitis C and needed a liver transplant. Jennifer delayed her schooling to take care of her mother. Jennifer's world collapsed when her mother died in 2001.  When she finally returned to school, she realized that she enjoyed taking care of her mother and decided she wanted to work in medicine. She studied more about hepatitis C and learned that it could be passed from mother to baby, so she got tested and learned she too had hepatitis. She went on to get her Medical Assistant degree and worked at a local family practice office.  In 2008, Jennifer became ill and found out she too needed a liver transplant.  With her second chance, Jennifer wants to continue her education and obtain a nursing degree and hopes to work as a transplant nurse to offer others facing the same situations she's been through comfort.

Septima Hardy, living kidney donor from Atlanta, GASeptima was in nursing school when she found out her younger brother had kidney failure and would need a kidney transplant. Septima and her father both got tested to see if they could be living donors to Septima's younger brother. Luckily, they both matched. Since Septima was in the middle of nursing school, her father donated his kidney. Septima had a number of nursing jobs after finishing school, but never felt truly satisfied until she began working as an organ procurement coordinator. Even though Septima later became a full-time intensive care unit nurse, she was soon reconnected with organ donation, as her younger brother needed a second kidney transplant. After donating in February 2008, Septima took a job as a Transplant Outreach Coordinator, working under the surgeon who performed her brother's first transplant surgery. Septima wants to take her nursing and transplant experiences to the next level and is looking to pursue an advanced nursing degree.
