“My family and I are thankful to the talented team of doctors, nurses and health care professionals for their care,” Runner said in a statement Friday evening. “My heart and gratitude go out to the family and friends of the anonymous donor. While they have lost a loved one, I hope they find comfort in knowing the power of their generous donation. This gift of life helped save eight lives and enhanced 50 others.”
Runner’s doctors expect her to make a full recovery. Within two to three weeks, she’ll be released from the hospital to resume her public service and will initially work from home. Runner anticipates returning to the office in the spring.
