Green Hair Helps Liver Recipient Spread Word About Organ Donation

For immediate release: May 02, 2014

When Kathleen Dobbs of Odenton, Maryland was 14 years old, she was diagnosed with primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC), a condition that causes the bile ducts in and around the liver to deteriorate. From that point on, Kathleen had to be careful of what she put on her skin, inhaled, and ingested because it would have to be filtered through her failing liver. 

Flash forward, and Kathleen is loving life following a liver transplant at UMMC. She can finally dye her hair, and she isn't subtle about it. She sported green hair for April's Donate Life Month to draw attention so she could educate others on the importance of organ donation.
