Taylor Dockins experienced the glitz and glamour of Hollywood on Wednesday evening, as she shared the red carpet with the world’s greatest athletes at the ESPYS awards show.
And minutes after returning home Thursday, Dockins got the news she has been waiting for: doctors at UCLA have approved her to be placed on a national list for a liver transplant.
“It’s been an unbelievable week,” Dockins said. “Getting to go to the ESPYS was amazing, a once-in-a-lifetime moment that I will never forget. And then to hear from the doctors about the transplant was emotional. It’s a life-changing decision they’ve made for me.”
