LEESBURG, GA (WALB) -

A Leesburg woman is able to joke with her family after having a life-saving liver transplant.

Wendy Hollomon's daughters say their mom is doing well after having the transplant in Jacksonville on Thursday.

Now, the girls are all heading back to Leesburg for several fundraisers to offset medical costs, including a softball tournament Saturday.

The campaign is called "Wishes for Wendy."

"Once a team always a team through life and everything," said Tournament Organizer Destiny Parsons. "[We] win and lose together. That is what we are doing, through life and everything and that is what we are doing. Try to raise money. Get her back healthy. Everybody wants to see her healthy again."

The softball tournament, walk, and silent auction all begin at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Kinchafoonee Complex off Hwy. 19 in Lee County.
