Upon the birth of her second child Peter, Catherine was ecstatic and so was her husband J.D. Hayes.
But unlucky for the pair as their child was born with biliary atresia, a rare chronic liver disease which causes progressive damage to vital body functions.
They faced a moment of crisis after hearing about Peter problem. They visited the Children's Hospital of Pittsburg along with their son.
The doctor told them to find a donor as Peter has to go through a liver transplantation surgery. As if the problem wasn't enough, the couple didn't find any donor.

In the end, Peter's mother Catherine decided to give up a portion of her liver. She went through a test and it was a match.
The mother and child got operated on 6th June. The doctors took out a portion of Catherine's liver and implanted it on Peter. As soon as her eyes opened, she asked,
"Did you get my liver, and did you give it to Peter?"
The operation was a big success and Peter and his mother recovered rather quickly.
