Lacy Barcak: I have my sister and Baylor Scott & White to thank for my liver transplant.

After 15 years, Lacy Barcak's progressive liver disease began gaining momentum. "I was in and out of the hospital," she says, "going from bad to worse." Lacy's only good option was a living-donor liver transplant, and for that, she needed two things: the right donor and the right hospital. Her sister proved a willing and well-matched donor. Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas did the rest, providing treatment at one of the top 10 hospitals in the nation that does adult living-donor liver transplants. "Nine days after the surgery, we did what healthy sisters do." says Lacy. "We went shopping."
