Ok he is 37 years old with four children and married. He is at mayo clinic awaiting a transplant but his time is running out. He is in stage four liver disease. Non alcoholic. Last week his levels shot so high that he was in a coma and on ventilator. While he was out suddenly his middle brother who has down syndrome passed away. He is awake and doing ok right now. My husband just buried one brother and we are desperate to help hid other brother. We need someone with A or O type blood 5'11" 200lbs to be a live donor. His insurance would pay for procedure just must be financially stable to be off work 6weeks. You can't smoke be a drinker or have mental illness. No one in family met qualifications.

Put it in the paper, and fb, the news. He's so young! I'm sure many people will respond. Maybe somebody even on here, change the topix title To Help, my husband is going to die without donor, the one you put up sounds like a questionar. And use your real name so if people want they can check out your fb and story. I pray he finds a donor soon.

I don't think they could have mental illnesses because it would mean they aren't fully aware of what they are doing or something. Like you have to be stable and level headed to be able to do it. I had to think it through too, like are you just prejudice? lol but then it hit me :)

Well it's very hard on donor why u can't have mental illness. He is in need of a liver. I have created a page yesterday on fb it's called LiverFor Danny. Haven't put pics yet but am working on it.

I'm going to say mental illness, suicide,personality disorders, bipolar, maybe depression, who knows. Which means most the world can't donate!

most people with mental illnesses are on medication that could or have damaged their liver. Most mental health patients have to have monthly lab test to check their liver enzymes, therefor they are not a strong candidate for a liver transport patient. I wish the best for him and will be praying that you find a donor for this man soon....praying

I did. I was a bone marrow donor. I'd do it again in a heart beat!
