Even as a busy college student at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, Miranda still finds time for another important priority: supporting the hospital, the place that gave her a second chance at life.

Miranda’s family first came to our hospital in 1995, when she was just 2 months old and gravely ill with biliary atresia, a serious congenital disease that leads to liver failure. Baby Miranda received a successful liver transplant and spent nearly a month recovering at the hospital. Her dedicated care team became like extended family, following her closely through regular checkups and helping her overcome post-transplant complications that could have had a tragic outcome. Today, Miranda attributes her good health to the outstanding lifetime of care she received at our hospital.
