Austin Mother receives priceless gift from daughter

Tammy Miranda is grateful to be alive. After years of being sick doctors told her she needed a liver transplant. A few tests later and doctors told her daughter, Miranda Bennett, that she was a match.

In no time at all they were in the operating room. Bennett gave her mom 60 percent of her liver. Hers has since grown back.

Since the transplant in 2014 Bennett has given birth to her daughter Violet making her mom a grandmother. Miranda says she wouldn't be here today without her daughter. They are sharing their story as part of National Donate Life Month in hopes of inspiring others to become donors.

The were recently honored as Medical Miracles at the UT Health Science Center San Antonio for their triumph during the transplant.
