HART, Mich. (WOOD) — An 11-year-old in need of a life-saving liver transplant has matched with a living donor after his mom turned to social media for hope.
Carol Hitchcock created a Facebook page, A Liver for Ryan, after learning her son was 35th on the transplant list in November. She talked to News 8 about her desperate search to find Ryan a match.
Earlier this month, Hitchcock learned someone who went through the testing process matched and a surgery is set up for April 7.
She told News 8 Thursday the living donor is from Grand Rapids, but otherwise, it’s a complete stranger who just wants to help.
