Transplant Unwrapped

Transplant Unwrapped started with the vision of our founder, Kayla Pfab, who saw a gap of knowledge in the medical field when it came to intestinal and multivisceral transplantation. Kayla received her Bachelor’s in Health Sciences and pursued her Master’s in Physician Assistant studies when she became too ill to complete her degree. Kayla underwent an isolated intestinal transplant in 2015, and after chronically rejecting the organ, underwent a modified multivisceral transplant in 2019.

In August 2020, Transplant Unwrapped became an official 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission to ensure every patient, caregiver, and member of the intestinal disease community feels well-educated and supported throughout their journey with intestinal failure, intestinal rehabilitation, and intestinal and multivisceral transplantation. 

Currently, Transplant Unwrapped offers a website with educational materials, patient and caregiver stories, clinician interviews, and webinars on topics relating to intestinal failure, intestinal rehabilitation, and intestinal and multivisceral transplantation. Each month Transplant Unwrapped selects a “Topic of the Month,” in which we provide new educational materials, host an expert-led webinar, and hold virtual support group sessions. We also offer one-on-one support through our Ambassador program and Ask the Expert initiatives. In addition, our Transplant Unwrapped Kid’s Site provides content through kid-friendly animations and activities. 

Our organization runs exclusively by unpaid volunteers. 100% of donations are used to develop new educational resources, support programs, and general operating expenses. Your gift today helps Transplant Unwrapped ensure every patient, caregiver, and member of the intestinal community feels well-educated and supported through every step of their challenging medical journey.
