My wife needs a new liver.

Soon after turning 34 years old, my wife of 10 years & restaurateur, Amanda was told she had Liver Disease. She was taken by helicopter to a larger hospital for treatment on January 13, 2014. Shortly thereafter her kidneys began to fail & she had to begin dialysis. After a month and a half, she was released from the hospital. Her kidneys recovered and by May, she was no longer on dialysis. Her condition improved for a brief period. However, after numerous procedures, blood transfusions, & hospital stays, that Fall, she was told she would need a liver transplant to survive. After liquidating two cars, I have had to make the heartbreaking decision to sell her restaurant to try to provide for her care. With some luck, someone will take over her dream and it can continue on.  If all goes well, she will be placed on the organ transplant list in January 2015.
