OMAHA, Nebraska (KTIV)- A well-received honor for a selfless Siouxland woman.
In the spring of last year, Julie Peiffer was diagnosed with liver cancer and was told she was going to need a liver transplant.
Julie’s first niece was tested and was not a match–but her second adopted niece, Katie Canoles, was.
Both Julie and Katie were admitted to Clarkson Hospital in Omaha on December 27.
Friday, Katie returned to the hospital to be honored for her donation.
Alongside Katie was other living kidney and liver donors who gave to others in 2018.
Katie’s family, including Julie, watched as Katie’s name was revealed on a ribbon plaque.
Julie and Katie’s full story can be found here.
