HELP GET JOHNNY OUT OF A JOHNNY!
John Melia needs a liver transplant. In 2001, John was diagnosed with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC), a rare autoimmune disease that causes the bile ducts inside and outside of the liver to become scarred, narrowed and eventually blocked which leads to liver damage and cirrhosis. This disease, which is unrelated to alcohol consumption, has no cure.

John had his liver transplant on August 1 with Molly donating a portion of her liver to her dad.
They are both recovering and have good days and not-so-good days. Step by step is our new motto.
Thanks all for your thoughts, prayers, and generosity.

Sending my love and prayers to you John. Maybe you remember me from Methuen Town Hall. I remember you and I am praying for you. Maybe your sister Kathie would remember me as Sara's mother. Good luck!
