Today, Rob and Jen and their two children -- Lauren and Jonathan -- live life to the fullest. And it's all thanks to a generous donor!
Robert Ayers barely witnessed his daughter Lauren's birth in October 2005. Just hours after bringing his wife, Jennifer, and the baby home from the hospital, Robert was hospitalized with further complications from the liver disease that has plagued him for over two years. Before his liver transplant, Rob Ayers feared he would not be alive to watch his newborn daughter Lauren grow up. Because of the generosity of his donor, exactly four months after transplant, Rob hiked to the summit of Mt. Adams with his wife Jen. Today, Rob and Jen and their two children -- Lauren and Jonathan -- live life to the fullest. And it's all thanks to a generous donor!
