Teen Talk: Scar may represent the moment teen’s life turned for the better

DEAR KELLY: I’m 15 and had a liver transplant at age 9. I have a really terrible scar on my stomach that I’m so embarrassed by. Anytime I change at PE someone has to ask me what happened or whose liver I have in me now or what happened to my own liver or if I’m going to die because of this.
