Liver transplant saves Poplar Grove woman
"This is what they were afraid of... it was time to call my family to say goodbye," said Tina Creviston.
In 2017 Tina was placed on a transplant list because her liver was failing quickly. Tina's niece, Ashley, risked her life to help. She donated 67% of her liver to Tina. The surgery was successful, but unfortunately, Ashley's liver did not respond well to her body. Tina was back in the same spot waiting for a liver.
Sadly, on the same day.... 22- year-old Cameron Bolton got into a fatal car crash. Just a few month later, on July 3rd, Tina was told she could live. This is all thanks to Cameron’s liver. Cameron’s mother, Sarah says her son has helped more than a dozen people by being an organ donor. She travels to visit some of the recipients. Tina was one of them.
"She let me know that I was her healer and that I was healing to her. She let me know that I was chosen,” said Creviston.
