Carole Pirri, who lives in Colorado Springs, was living a happy and normal life in 1995, until the day she went in for a routine physical and was told that her liver wasn’t functionally well. Three years later, her condition worsened. She was no longer able to live a healthy life and doctors told her she needed a liver transplant. She was put on the transplant list and over the next five years, she waited. Carole met her donor’s mother, Melody, at Donor Alliance’s race, the Donor Dash, in 2007.
