To kick-off the month we are proud to highlight a POSTER created by Kelly Smith, mom of a pediatric liver transplant recipient. This poster will be on display at Mount Sinai in their Pavilion all month long. It is a moving piece which tells the story of both success in transplantation but also the challenges, specifically the shortage of available organs.

Throughout April we will also be sharing facts and statistics about transplantation and organ donation - be sure to "Like" us on Facebook so you are in the know!
