Dear Family and Friends,
As some of you may know, I was diagnosed with chronic cirrhosis of the liver. My condition worsened quickly and my doctors at the University of Virginia have told me that my only chance for survival is a liver transplant. I am currently undergoing medical evaluation and have been placed on the active waiting list. Although this news has come as a shock to me and my family, I am hopeful that a transplant will help me return to my normal life.
