We are particularly interested in information from any of you that may have more personal information that may help others. We obviously have only first-hand knowledge about a few types of liver disease and the other topics in this site. THANK YOU in advance for helping us keep up to date.

Eight days later, as she was having surgery to remove a gangrenous, necrotic gallbladder she received an additional diagnosis: End-stage Liver Disease (cirrhosis) as a result of NASH and fatty liver disease. A quote from Mark Twain: "I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened."
D's Story is about a husband, father and grandfather who is a cirrhosis, liver cancer and transplant survivor! He has a spark in him to pay forward anything that he can in many transplant related areas: 1) helping people and their caregivers deal with liver disease; 2) supporting people waiting for transplants and fellow recipients; 3) promoting organ/tissue donor registration; 4) showing the transplant community's thanks to living donors & donor families; 5) working for organizations related to this community such as Donate Life.
