Cedar, who was named after a tree, has achieved a lot in her almost-decade of being alive—she has a podcast, she’s sort of a Do-It-Yourself queen, an accomplished video game champion (thanks to Covid), and she likes a lot of, you know, normal kid stuff—not including getting a liver transplant at the age of five.

Cedar has something called Progressive Familial Intrahepatic Cholestasis, otherwise known as PFIC 2. This devastating genetic disorder affects 1 in 50,000 to 1 in 100,000 live births and, if untreated, can be fatal by the age of twenty. Visit http://pfic.org for more information.
