Save Bob’s Life by SHARING!

There are a few other, less effective treatments available to Bob currently.  With a high likelihood of disease progression, Bob’s best path forward is a transplant from a living partial liver donor.  This option will not only improve his quality of life but extend it.  Patients are eligible for deceased liver donations when they are on the UNOS transplant waitlist.  However, their MELD (model for end-stage liver disease) score determines their spot on the waitlist.  Due to the nature of Bob’s liver disease, his current MELD score is not high enough for him to receive a liver from a deceased donor.
