Angel Donor

The Story

Olivia never asked to have a disease like Biliary Atresia. It made her liver sick and only a transplant will make her better. After waiting several months and close to losing hope, she gets the call she’s been waiting for. The journey of her life is about to begin. 

The Second Edition

The second edition was published in October 2021, just in time for Liver Disease Awareness Month. This time I published it through my own publishing company, Valentino Publishing. Angel Donor has been successfully funded through Kickstarter, and we are so grateful to all our supporters.

The Story Behind the Story

Angel Donor is inspired by my daughter who was born with a rare liver disease called Biliary Atresia. This disease stops the liver from working properly and many children born with it, end up needing a liver transplant. When my daughter was four, she was listed for a liver transplant. The wait was daunting. 

As a person who always turned to books for answers, I wanted to find one that my daughter could identify with. When I couldn’t find what I was looking for, the idea of Angel Donor was born. After my daughter’s transplant, she referred to her donor as her “Angel Donor”, which then became the title of this much-needed story.
