A liver transplant gave Javier a new liver and a new love. On the night of his 22nd birthday, Javier had no idea it might be his last. A healthy and active SMU student, he was suddenly in critical condition with his mom driving in search of a hospital. They saw the shining cross atop Methodist Dallas Medical Center as a sign of hope. Racing the clock, transplant physicians quickly diagnosed Javier's failing liver as he fell unconscious. He awoke a week later with a new liver and a new lease on life. Today, Javier will tell you he couldn't have made it without those doctors. His fiancée, Shaley, will tell you she couldn't think of life without Javier.
