“She believed she could, so she did.” The quote sits next Donna’s chair and she has done her very best to live by it….regardless of what life has dealt her. Only 54 years old, Donna Johnson has had more hospital stays than anyone should have to endure. It hasn’t been easy for a woman who has spent more than half of her life taking care of others. A nurse by trade, a wife and mother of six and grandmother of 13, Donna has been there for many people in their time of need in spite of many health issues and lots of surgeries that threatened her life.
Now, thanks to the miracle of finding out about and being blessed with a wonderful transplant team, Donna received a small bowel transplant and has just started down the road of recovery. After years of taking care of others, both professionally and at home, Donna really needs our help.
