Colorado Woman in Need of 4 Organs, Looking for Donors

Posted: Updated:

Molly Pearce is an extraordinary 24-year-old Colorado woman in need of four organs to survive.

She is currently at University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha awaiting a private family/donor to come forward to donate the gift life time- 4 organs- (a kidney, pancreas, small intestine and liver).

The Flood Sisters Kidney Foundation of America is a non-profit kidney foundation based out of New York City. The foundation is working to help find someone that can save Molly's life.

Molly was born with Hirschsprung's disease, a congenital disorder that affects the large intestine (colon) and causes problems with passing stool.

She was given a kidney by her mother in 2007, but it was rejected. At the age of 13, she received a small intestine transplant. However, about a month ago, doctors explained to her that they would have to remove all her organs due to the rejection/infection.

She is now on the National Waiting List for all four organs to become available from an 'O' donor which could take years.
