Woman overcomes liver disease, shares story with others

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A woman who is alive today because of organ donation shared her story Thursday night at the Albany Civil Rights Institute.     

Hildred Peggy Lyons signed copies of her book "Getting to the Good, a story of triumph, faith, and a child's legacy of life."     

She talked about how her faith in God and an organ donation from a little boy allowed her to beat liver disease.  

"It's a realistic true story about how God answers prayer and how he brings you through even when it looks impossible because I was sent home to die, but if not for God and his answering our prayers," said Hildred Peggy Lyons, author.     

November is National Organ Donation Awareness Month. To get a copy of Lyons' book visit amazon.com
