2018 National LIVEr Champion
Traci and Brodie Tigue
The Tigues’ world came crashing to a halt in September of 2015, when their four-month old son, Brodie, was diagnosed with a rare liver disease – Biliary Atresia. His only option for survival – a liver transplant.
After a whirlwind of events, Brodie’s mom, Traci, was a match to be a living organ donor, and she could donate a “SLIVER OF LIVER” to save him – giving him a second chance at life.
When Brodie was just five months and five days old, the family celebrated his “NEW LIVER BIRTHDAY.” Their surgeries were textbook, with the brilliant Liver Transplant Team at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio.
The family is thrilled to report that Brodie is now two years post-transplant, and doing incredible. He is as adorable and ornery as they come, and he loves his new liver! His favorite things are Paw Patrol, tractors, lawn mowers, teasing his big sister Harper, and being on the move. Traci currently serves as a member of both the American Liver Foundation Heartland Division Board and the National Board.
