Woman Gives Part of Liver in Rare Transplant

For immediate release: July 11, 2014

Approximately 5% of liver transplants each year occur from living donors. The University of Maryland Medical Center is one of only a few centers in the country to offer living donor liver transplants for adult patients. 

April Biggs took full advantage of the team's expertise when she donated 60% of her liver to save her "uncle" Charles. Watch their special story as aired on ABC2 News in Baltimore. 

Contact the Liver Transplant team at 410-328-3444 to learn more about living liver donation.
