With two trips to the Transplant Games of America, Deven Shelton has already inspired thousands at the Olympic-like sports festival. Yesterday, his inspirational story was shared by Katie Felts of KSDK Channel 5.

Watch the story here.
Deven is a member of Team Transplant St. Louis, a group of recipients, living donors and Donor Families. In addition to participating in the Transplant Games of America every two years, the team works to raise awareness for organ and tissue donation and encourage others to join the organ and tissue donor registry.
