Say "Yes" Today

Caroline B.

Hello to December and a new face in the LifeLink® Faces of Transplantation Calendar. Meet Caroline B.

From an early age, Caroline was an active picture of good health, but around middle school she noticed her knee and hip would dislocate frequently, mostly while doing normal, everyday activities. As Caroline got older, the pain with each dislocation grew worse and Caroline learned she had a congenital condition impacting her bones and joints. Several surgeries to correct the condition did not relieve Caroline’s pain so she sought another medical opinion and learned a tissue transplant could alleviate her discomfort.

Caroline underwent surgeries on each knee separately, and within six months she was pain-free. “My tissue transplants changed my life in ways that I didn’t know they could. It is the most powerful earthly gift I’ve ever received.” Caroline is grateful to have met one of the donor families who helped restore her mobility.

As a graduating senior at Kennesaw State University, studying exercise science with further aspirations to become a Doctor of Physical Therapy, Caroline plans to continue to help others with pain and physical challenges.
