Looking at Destiny today, it is hard to believe that as an infant she was diagnosed with severe liver disease and only given six months to live. At the tender age of one, Destiny only weighed 13 pounds and was desperately ill. Her only hope for survival was a liver transplant. Today, thanks to the generous gift of her donor, Destiny is a normal and happy teenager, who will soon be starting high school!
