Transplant Story

Jillian Best (liver, Canada)

My liver transplant has given me my life back! Since then, I’ve been able to pursue my dreams, and live a fulfilling life with purpose.

The sport of swimming aided my recovery from the transplant surgery. Being physically fit is my way of giving thanks to my organ donor and his family, while taking care of my health both mentally and physically. I want to do my part to take the best care of this gift of life that I’ve received, and that means being part of a community that also prioritizes and understands the importance of regular physical activity!
