Maddox Raptosh: The Selfless Act that Saved His Life

When Matt and Michele Raptosh learned that their infant son, Maddox, was in liver failure and needed a transplant, they became determined to find him a living donor. With time running out, they turned to Facebook in search of a donor. Michele’s cousin, Christa, saw her message and offered to donate a piece of her liver for the life-saving transplant.

Thanks to Christa, Maddox is now an active, happy 3-year old.

“It was such a selfless act. It’s truly an amazing gift and an incredible bond,” says Michele.
