Waynesville resident celebrates life after transplant

Written by 

Life Share of the Carolina’s and a local organ donation recipient are hosting a Transplant Party to celebrate the lives saved through organ donation from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Feb. 16, at Main Street Perks in downtown Waynesville.

Waynesville resident Rachel Tucker received her heart transplant 11 years ago on Feb. 13 after being diagnosed with a condition known as viral cardiomyopathy. The event aims to raise awareness for the need of organ donation and encourage people to become donors as well as raise funds for Life Shares through a silent are auction. Battle Victorious, Michael Pilgrim, Kryss Dulla, Cyndy Tippett, and JANSML will provide live music. It is free and open to the public.
