A Lifesaving Liver Transplant at Five Months Old

Mikey

The family has continued to give back to their community as LifeGift Vital Volunteers

Armed forces veterans Marie and Rickey know the importance of organ donation. Their son Mikey received a lifesaving liver transplant at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston. At the time, he was only 5 months old.

Today, Mikey is a thriving young boy. He loves to collect stickers and play basketball with his older brother, Kendall. The family has continued to give back to their community as LifeGift Vital Volunteers. They’ve even gone to Austin to lobby for change and to advocate for those waiting for transplants.
