My name is Jeff, and I am asking for your help to save my life.
I live in Colorado and toured professionally for 20 years as a Tour Manager managing concerts, Broadway and Cirque du Soliel.
I have been on disability for 3 years due to a worsening liver condition. Rather than risk my good health, my goal is to have a liver transplant before my condition worsens and it becomes necessary.
I want to return to a normal healthy life so I can obtain a Masters degree, return to work and coach employees.
I have had two friends and one relative be tested to become my living donor but they were not a match.
Living donor transplants generally have better outcomes and can be arranged at a time convenient for both parties. No waiting and wondering while my body continues to weaken. More so, this surgery is covered for both the donor and the recipient under my health insurance!
If you have any questions or concerns about the living donation process in any aspect, please sign up for the American Transplant Foundation's Potential Living Donor Database and we can provide you with any resources you may need, including speaking with a living organ donor directly.
I would appreciate you sharing this information with anyone that you know who might be interested or a match.
Thank you so much for your consideration!
