After waiting ten years, when Yannai was 24 and his wife was six-months pregnant with twins, Yannai received a liver that saved his life. Now Yannai and his family live happily in Bergenfield, NJ. Yannai works as a Director at K-12 Educational Technology and his wife works as a nurse at New York Presbyterian Hospital – the very same hospital where Yannai received his life-saving transplant.
