“You are the most beautiful and amazing person I have never know”

Amanda Lopez, Liver Recipient, 2001 & 2004

Amanda Lopez, University Transplant Center Patient Navigator, is a two time liver recipient. Amanda is celebrating her 10 year Transplant Anniversary today, April 5, 2014. She dedicates this day to her donor…

“How can I begin to say thank you for selflessly saving my life and the lives of others? You gave me a gift when I had only a small glimmer of life left. You created hope for a family who helplessly watched their loved one slip away, and you’ve brought light to all the darkness that once filled this dying girl’s world.

Not a day goes by that I don’t think of this precious gift I have received and how I will live up to its generous and selfless nature. I can promise you that I will live each day of this life with the same amount of faith, hope and love that you have shown me. I promise I will try each day to inspire others with my story which is really YOUR story and I promise to honor you in everything I do.

You are a hero, an inspiration, and a life saver. You’ve created miracles and touched lives farther beyond that which one person could ever possibly imagine. You are the most beautiful and amazing person I have never known and I am honored to carry you with me every day.

I am one of your miracles! I love you and I am living proof that organ donation saves lives.”
