A Massey area woman has had a life-saving liver transplant.

Elizabeth Cassidy had a liver transplant on Wednesday from a live matching donor.

A portion of their liver, which is all that is needed, was transplanted to Cassidy.

Cassidy’s liver, which had failed her just over a year ago due to a chronic illness was also removed.

Cassidy extends a thank you to everyone for their prayers and well wishes.

She will remain in Toronto hospital for a few months while she recovers and enters an anti-rejection regimen.
