"My best chance for a good life, or any life at all,  is through a living donor. It most certainly is the greatest gift  that you can give to someone unconditionally."

zachary— POtential liver Transplant Recipient

My name is Zachary, and I am asking for your help to save my life.

I myself am an organ donor. It most certainly is the greatest gift  that you can give to someone unconditionally. I finally am engaged to my best friend and have a beautiful family with her and her two daughters and our cat too! I am still actively involved with my community and enjoy life, spending time with my family and friends.

 I am a 44 year old Penn State University graduate.  I went to PSU on an athletic scholarship throwing the javelin,  where I earned Big Ten honors each year and competed on the national level.  I am an avid sports fan and very involved in my community, volunteering for the past 10 years at the NJ Clinton Elks Lodge.  I have been employed at my job for the last 18 years where I am a sales representative for a major cabinet manufacturer.

In August of 2021, I found out that my liver was failing. My energy was extremely low, my appetite was near to nothing and when I did eat or drink, I could not keep anything down.  Additionally, I was turning yellow.  After an emergency room visit and an ultimate hospital stay, I found out the horrible news, that I would need a liver transplant.  

I was shocked, but at this same time I was told that this was not a “death sentence” and that there were highly successful outcomes with transplants using living donors. Being a living donor only requires the donation of a portion of your liver.  That is why being a living donor is a viable option for someone willing to help me.  Unlike waiting on a deceased donor, a Living Donor can arrange this elective surgery with me to fit their schedule.  More so, this surgery is covered for both the donor and the recipient under my health insurance!

The best chance I have to get a liver transplant is to receive a portion of one from a living donor.

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.

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!
