Domenic Frappolli's Story

When I was born I was diagnosed with Biliary Atresia. For the next decade of my life I was in and out of the hospital plagued by jaundice and other complications from my disease. However, as I continued to grow up, I became healthier and doctor visits were less frequent. For most of my high school career my liver disease didn’t inhibit me; I was able to play sports, hang out with my peers, and succeed academically. Two years ago, I went across the country to attend Pepperdine University. Then, I spent this past year studying aboard in Switzerland and traveling all across Europe. Thanks to the support from my family, friends, and doctors, I have accomplished things I never dreamed I would or could. I still have not gotten a liver transplant and I hope I never will.
