474 When Hope Is Your Only Option; Triple Transplant Recipient Jim Stavis

October 27, 2019

Jim Stavis is a triple organ transplant survivor. He was diagnosed at age 17 with Juvenile diabetes; his early diagnosis served to motivate him to take action towards success in business and in life. He started a business, got married and had a family knowing that he may not live past age 50. In his 40’s it became apparent he would need a rare triple organ transplant to replace his heart, kidney and pancreas. Now, 14 years later, Jim promotes organ donation and has developed a true understanding of how to overcome great adversity. He has written a book about it called ‘When Hope Is Your Only Option’, is a frequent speaker and is also featured in a documentary called Source Of Hope.
