No foreigner to firsts
Abdullah Alazemi of Kuwait may be from a foreign country, but "firsts" are not foreign to him. In December 2004, when he was 11 months old, Abdullah became New England's first recipient of a multivisceral transplant.

 

 

Transplant saves a tiny life
It took nine months and a trip of nearly 3,000 miles, but in the end it was all worth it for tiny Adara Henriquez and her parents.

 

 

A bumpy ride to health
It's amazing how much life can change in just three short months. Just ask Vanessa and Charlie Koch, who quickly went from showing off their healthy newborn son to awaiting a call that would save his life.

 

 

Mother's donation saves daughter's life
The need for organs and tissues for transplant far exceeds the availability. Fortunately for Courtney Holland, her mother was able to donate a lobe of her own liver at a time when her daughter was getting sicker by the day.
