The family and friends of OJ are uniting to raise money to help with his battle with Hep C/Liver Failure. Please show your support!

OJ Process to Diagnosis:

OJ was diagnosed on October 1, 2008 with cirrhosis of the liver. In the time of 2008 to present he has been to hospitals with high ammonia levels. Due to high ammonia levels in one’s body, it causes the person to become delusional. Since then he has been in 4 comas due to his condition.

He had been having some discomfort over the past several months, and recently his abdomen had started to swell tremendously. He was unsure of the cause, but it was causing extreme discomfort. When he went to the doctor, he was immediately referred (within hours) to a specialist in Florida.

Due to living in Puerto Rico for some time, everyone (including news casters) is, under the assumption that Hep C is like Aids/ HIV. Wrong it is NOT, Hep C is a virus that effects the persons liver functions.

Recently have moved to Florida with the hopes of getting a transplant in order to survive. As of last week he has been in and out of hospitals, due to discomfort with his abdomen swelling and not going down. The doctors drained several liters of fluid out of his abdomen ( 7 Liters. The doctors say until he can receive a liver he will have to continue to have fluids periodically drained (7 liters were drawn within a 4 day period).

If anyone reading this post is connected with the health insurance industry, or has any contacts / resources that you can pass on to us, that would be GREATLY appreciated. We are tapping into as many resources as we can to come up with the funds to help him through this. Thank you all, in advance, for any help you can offer OJ.
