Ginger Ireland, living liver donor from Kansas City, MOGinger Ireland remembers watching a video with her nursing school classmates about living donation and not giving it much thought at the time… but it ended up changing her life.  A few years later, in 2002, her father was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver and was placed on the transplant waiting list.  The doctors predicted it would take more than a year to receive a liver and so when her father's condition seemed to have declined, Ginger recalled the video and called his transplant coordinator to inquire about being tested as a donor for her father.  In 2003, she successfully donated part of her liver to her father.

Her desire to pursue higher education stems from that transplant.  However, last year, she had to give up school when she developed a form of post-transplant cancer.  Yet, this setback has not deterred her dreams. She was selected as a the US Ambassador for the United Nations Populations Fund due to her immense work in public health, including chairing the Young Political Leaders of Tomorrow and the Darfur Committee.  She also lobbied for a bill to provide health care to the 800,000 uninsured Marylanders and has started her own children's charity, Sacred Hearts Children's Transplant Organization.
