Kurt had a good Dr's appointment in Salt Lake City on Friday. He has gained weight and is feeling better. The Dr. made the comment that he looks like a great transplant candidate. Everything needed to get on the transplant list is complete and he should get on the list either today or next Monday (review happens on Mondays). Once on the list, the living donor possibility can be evaluated. That process can take 6 to 8 months.
Keep Kurt in your thoughts and prayers and we welcome any help in raising money for helping to cover uninsured medical expenses.

Kurt has been battling liver issues over the past year. He has been off work for the past 6 months. He is currently going through the processes, including medical tests and treatments necessary to get onto the liver transplant list. He is also very fortunate to have two possible living liver donors (family) that have stepped forward.
We are hopeful that he will get on the transplant list in early October. Once on the list, tests can be done to evaluate the living donor possibility.
While Kurt has health insurance due to the extremely generous support of his past employer, we are seeking contributions to help with many of the medical/ travel expenses that are not covered by insurance.
Your contribution is tax deductible. We also ask for your thoughts and prayers for Kurt as he battles and overcomes his health issues. Let Kurt know you are thinking about him by posting on his page.
