Delores is getting sicker every day. Please don’t wait – we need your help now.
Our active and loving sister, mother and grandmother, Delores Wright was diagnosed with end-stage liver cancer in 2019. Delores loves nothing more than spending time with her family, especially her son, Joe and her grandkids Brandon, Owen and her new granddaughter Amelia. However, her liver disease is now critical and has disrupted her ability to stay active and now leaves her struggling with daily pain.

Dear Friends and Family,
I wanted to share some exciting news about Delores!
On December 11, 2020, Delores received the call she had been waiting for from her doctors at OHSU in Portland, Oregon. Her liver was ready!
She had to leave her home immediately in order to receive her new liver in time. Her Son, Joe, rushed to pick her up and make the 131 mile drive to the hospital. They needed to reach the hospital by 4:00 p.m. They arrived at 4:10 p.m., but fortunately, it wasn’t to late. She went into surgery later that evening and five (5) hours later she had received her new liver.
She was transferred out of ICU after 24 hours and then stayed another seven (7) days before being discharged from the hospital on December 18, 2020.
She had a successful operation and has been recovering in the Rood House Pavillion since that time. She is required to remain in Portland for approximately 3 months after surgery.
Although her recovery is going well, it is complicated and will be ongoing to avoid organ rejection. She will be on anti-rejection drugs for life.
Delores is so appreciative of the exceptional medical team at OHSU. Their dedication to her care and recovery was vital to her successful operation.
Also, to all Donors to her campaign, we just want you to know how grateful we are for your generous donations. We are so thankful and blessed to have such wonderful and loving Friends and Family. Delores is massively grateful to you all.

Hello everyone, I just wanted to offer an update on my sister, Delores. She just recently returned from an appointment at OSHU, for her 3 month check-up with her liver doctor. Her liver tumor has not changed much they say, however, they are discussing at this time whether to treat the tumor with chemo and radiation to attempt to keep it from growing and/or spreading. So we will wait and see. She has been experiencing more pain in the last few weeks, so I pray she will not have to wait long for her transplant. Once again, thank you for all your support.
