Olympic medalist, liver transplant recipient discusses Chris Klug Foundation
About Chris Klug
Chris Klug had a liver transplant on July 28th, 2000. Eighteen months later, Klug won third place in the giant slalom at the Olympic Games. The professional snowboard has called the journey a humbling experience for not just him, but friends, family and fans.
In the early '90s when at what appeared to be the top of his health, Klug was diagnosed with PSC (Primary Sclerosing Cholangitits), a rare degenerative bile duct condition which required a transplant.
Today, thankful for the gift of life, the transplant and team at the University Hospital in Denver, Klug is the founder of The Chris Klug Foundation and Donor Dudes, which raise awareness and support for organ translations.
