Danny Leach is a 65-year old father, grandfather and great-grandfather who was diagnosed with liver cancer and requires a transplant for survival. Danny always has a smile on his face and a friendly word for all those he comes in contact with and he now needs your help. The cost of a liver transplant can be overwhelming.
Danny grew up in New Palestine, Indiana before relocating to Indianapolis in his early teens. He graduated from Manual High School. In 1986, Danny and his wife Annie were married and began a blended family consisting of 8 children. Danny worked at Rand McNally Printing for 25-years before switching gears to Ingersoll-Rand where he worked for another 12-years manufacturing materials. Unfortunately, in 2011, Danny was forced into early retirement due to his liver damage and was no longer able to work. He spends his time attending support groups, visiting with family, finding an occasional fishing hole and watching old-time movies. Danny wants to see his grandchildren and great grandchild grow up and a transplant is his only option.

Danny is scheduled for chemoembolization on November 15th. The plan is to stop the growth of one of the tumors that is currently at 3.4 cm. The maximum size for transplant is 5.0 cm. The growth of the tumor over one month period was approximately 1 cm. This is a scary procedure because he is still waiting on the pressure in the lungs to come down making a transplant possible.
We appreciate your continued support and prayers.
