Benjamin Hummel - Child Liver Transplant Survivor and Children's Book Illustrator - Digital Self Portrait

Husband, Artist, 2x Liver Transplant Survivor – Benjamin Hummel

I am blessed to be married to a handsome and talented artist who has an extraordinary view on celebrating life. My husband Benjamin Hummel and I will be celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary this June and he will also be celebrating 20 years of liver transplant survival!

Now, you have to understand, with his autoimmune disease PSC that he was born with, this is no small accomplishment!

He made this animated video to tell his story of both transplants and his relisting to the liver transplant waiting list. Watch Benjamin Hummel’s Transplant Story.

Life isn’t always easy and pain-free… but it is something to cherish.
