Say "Yes" Today

Valerie Franks

Diagnosed with biliary atresia – a disease of the bile ducts - at only 18 months old, Valerie Franks needed a transplant to survive. She received that transplant when she was only two and grew up to live a happy, healthy life with her husband. After eight years of marriage, the couple were ready to grow their family. Their daughter Aniston, is a true miracle of life, as she would not be here if it hadn’t been for her mom’s liver transplant years ago. Valerie recently welcomed her second child, another daughter. “To be able to live a normal childhood, get married and start our family all because of my transplant is amazing. I’m thankful.”
