he was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and had to undergo an emergency colectomy. In the fall of 2005, Alexandria became jaundiced and learned she would need a liver transplant. Four days after she was placed on the waiting list, Alexandria received a new liver. Now, Alexandria is experiencing the independence of a college student at Bowling Green State University and living on campus, something that she never imagined herself doing, since she was always homeschooled growing up due to the health risks posed by a normal classroom setting. After everything that Alexandria has been through, she has made it her goal to raise awareness about organ donation and wants to continue volunteering for The Arthritis Foundation, Make-A-Wish and Life Connections of Ohio.

Kayleigh Sechi, liver recipient from South Hadley, MAKayleigh was diagnosed with fulminant liver failure on Thanksgiving Day in 2009, and her doctors determined she needed an emergency liver transplant. Kayleigh had stayed at Mount Holyoke College over Thanksgiving that year to save money so she could return home to Florida for Christmas. Her mother arrived to the hospital just as Kayleigh was entering a coma. Doctors weren't sure if Kayleigh would survive another 24 hours, but miraculously, a liver became available for her transplant. Kayleigh's mom moved to Massachusetts to be with Kayleigh as she recovered. Kayleigh says she is so appreciative of everyone who contributed to her successful transplant; most importantly, her donor's decision to register. Since her transplant, Kayleigh began volunteering with Donate Life to educate others about organ donation. She has also received full credit for her college work, is working part-time and is pursing premedical studies at a major hospital. Kayleigh looks forward to applying to medical school this fall.
