Kara Thio, a University of North Carolina student and Cary native, was just 8 months old when she had a liver transplant that saved her life.
"It's scary and awesome at the same time," said Thio. "It's scary because there is a family out there that lost their son, but who were gracious enough to make that decision to share their son's life with a stranger."
Thio has been sharing her story through volunteer work at Carolina Donor Services, but now she can share something else -- her Facebook status.
"People are on it all the time," explained Thio. "I updated mine this morning for my timeline to say I was an organ donor and it literally took three seconds."
