Hello, My name is Barry Crow, I am 28 years old, I have a wife named Amanda and we have a daughter and 3 boys together. In 2017 I had my gallbladder removed and the doctors noticed my liver was very scarred and bumpy, so they took a liver biopsy and it showed I have Auto Immune Hepatitis and stage 4 fibrosis of the liver. The doctors put me on tons of steriods which made me horribly sick and then they told me they didn’t know what else they could do for me. My wife then researched liver specialists in Utah and thats where I have been going since April of 2018. I was starting to feel better and my liver enzymes we’re starting to get better. Well, then March of 2019 I was hospitalized with extreme abdominal pain and my liver doctor did some testing and found out I have PSC on top of the Auto immune Hepatitis and stage 4 fibrosis of the liver. I just had my 6 month appt September of 2019 and it came to be revealed that I now have cirrhosis of the liver. I am going to need a liver transplant to save my life. I have been working 5 days a week just to support my family. My wife takes care of our 4 kids, makes my appts, takes me to my appts and she also does small businesses at home to help me support our family. Once its time for me to get my liver transplant, my wife and I will have to move to Utah for my transplant and then we have to stay remaining in Utah for 4-6 weeks (minimum) after my transplant. My wife and I are hoping to raise funds to help with my medical expenses, travel expenses, and hotel expenses. Thank you all so much for taking the time to read my story and donating.
