About Aria

Aria McDonald

Aria MacDonald

Aria is an amazing four year old little girl from Manurewa, Auckland, New Zealand.  Aria received her gift of life on the 6th of February 2010, a small bowel, kidney, liver and pancreas transplant at the Nebraska Medical Center, in Omaha, USA.  Sadly the new intestine has rejected and Aria was relisted on the organ transplant list on the 27th of April 2010.  Aria received her 2nd gift of life on Mothers Day 9th May 2010.

Aria’s story begins after birth when she was diagnosed with a very rare condition of the bowel known as total intestinal aganglionosis or total Hirschsprung’s disease. There is no cure and it means she will never be able to digest food.


“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”- Jeremiah 29:11
