Janet Wannamaker & Sonja Reeves – Living Donor Liver Transplant Recipient & Donor

Janet

Janet Wannamaker hadn’t felt well for years and the extreme fatigue along with other symptoms only got worse over time. She eventually sought medical attention, but no one could figure out the root of the problem. Finally, a friend suggested that she get a consult with one of the doctors practicing at the Transplant Center at University Hospital. Janet was told she needed a liver transplant. In a gesture of great significance, her friend’s daughter Sonja Reeves volunteered to donate a small part of her healthy liver to Janet through our Living Donor Liver Transplant Program.
