An annual physical revealed that Evelyn Colon had Hepatitis C. After several years of living life with no complications, she slowly began to feel ill and was informed that she would need a liver transplant.

Evelyn remained on the transplant waiting list for two years before receiving her life-saving liver transplant.

Since receiving her transplant she has been a huge advocate for donation by donating hundreds of hours of her time to educating her community about the great need for everyone to sign up to be an organ donor. She has also established a mentoring program at her local transplant center where she visits patients awaiting a transplant and offers them encouragement and hope!
