Did you know that these 10 celebrities have had organ transplant
9 Mickey Mantle
Mickey Mantle is widely regarded as one of the greatest ever to play the game of baseball. He was also known to be a high level alcoholic and years of alcohol abuse caused liver cancer as well as cirrhosis, and he even contracted Hepatitis C.
He was put on the list for transplant despite his record as an alcoholic and his age of 63. He quickly received a liver and underwent the operation in 1995. Sadly the transplant could save him and he died later in the same year.
