Brooke Parrish, 14, works on homework in her living room in Rolesville, NC Tuesday, Jan. 6, 2015. The Rolesville Middle School student is recovering at home after recently receiving a liver transplant at Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh. She suffers from Hepatopulmonary syndrome, a condition which causes shortness of breath due to broadening blood vessels in the lungs of patients with liver disease. The only cure for this syndrome is a liver transplant. The Rolesville community rallied around the young girl and raised money for the transplant which can cost nearly $500,000.
