Thank you all for your support and donations thus far. We are excited to share that Derrick received his liver transplant on December 31 and is recovering at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. He is making wonderful progress and even managed to take a short walk around the hospital unit. Derrick is getting stronger each day and his doctors are very pleased with his progress thus far.
Please continue to keep him and his family in your prayers as he makes his way down the road to recovery.

Derrick has been one of the most influential males in my life. As his younger cousin, Derrick never lets it slip by how bad or devilish I was growing up with him and my younger cousins. From fighting some of my cousins, to even getting lost at the Continental Airlines Arena after a Nets game ( remember that one D lmao). He can't say growing up was boring especially if I was in the mix. But I in awe of Derricks spirit, his love for his family all over and especially to his son, Diallo and his beautiful wife Deanna (hey cuzz :D). I know that Derrick is going to make it through this circumstance and whatever the future may hold. And when things get tough Derrick just remember if you were able to survive rearing me up through all the hell, fire, and brimstone I put you through lol then you are going to come out stronger than ever. Much love cuz. I will have fufu and soup ready for you next time your up here or I'm down there. Take care and NEVER GIVE UP
