Shelley: (about her liver disease and transplant) This is the kind of situation that can tear people apart. It tears at the fabric of your soul and can certainly tear at your marriage and ours has gotten only stronger. Not only did we get closer, but friends and even people I didn't know were seriously praying for me. It was an enormous experience to go through, and although I wouldn't wish it on any one, it has been — with the exception of meeting my husband — the most profound experience my life. It has changed everything forever.
