Daniel Avina, our dad, was diagnosed with End-stage Liver Disease and it is critical for him to receive a new liver to survive. As you can imagine, this is difficult news to share with family and friends as he has always been a very private person.

We’re asking family and friends to join us in fundraising for the nonprofit Help Hope Live to help with critical expenses Daniel will face immediately after surgery, including the cost of lodging near Stanford’s Transplant Center, where he is required to stay for several weeks.

My dad had a successful liver transplant surgery last night into the morning. We are extremely grateful for everyone's prayers and positive energy. He is now recovering in the ICU.

Our thoughts are with the family that lost their loved one yesterday and we thank them for making the amazing decision of becoming an organ donor. The impact they have made on our family and those of other donor recipients is beyond words. They have truly given us an amazing gift and they will forever be in our hearts. ❤

If you aren't a registered donor, I urge to please become one.

We have been told to prepare for a long and rough road to recovery. My dad will spend the next couple weeks under observation at Stanford. He will then need to relocate closer to Stanford for a few months to be able to continue post-care.

We will continue to update everyone and appreciate all of your support.

We thank everyone for their continued support. My dad is now at Stanford Medical Center, after waiting at SVMH for a few days while a bed opened up. He's been able to make nurses laugh and they said he was "quite a character". Yesterday was a positive day and I was happy to be a part of it. #DaybyDay
