She faced several operations before having a combined kidney and liver transplant.
Sheeba is now making the most of her second chance at life - she is a Community Safety Officer, has taken part in the Transplant Games, volunteers at her church and is learning sign language.
Sheeba said: "If my donor family didn't choose to have the conversation before they died I would have been long gone and not been alive telling my story. It's only with people with a big heart, like my donor's family, that recipients like me are alive today. So please give the gift of life... give people like me a chance today!"
