I am Dwight J. Crawford, a lifelong resident of the Asheville, NC community who was diagnosed July 1991 with Hepatitis C that initiated my 24 years decline towards End Stage Liver Disease (ESLD).
First of all and up front we want to acknowledge our donor family who generously share the liver from their family member to enable me to continue life. We have never met but still hold hope of meeting our generous family.

GO FUND ME
Hello Facebook family. Many of you are partially or fully aware of my health challenges. What is not known is the real impact on our finances.
December 4, 2015 I received a life saving liver after my liver failed. The failure also made my kidneys fail that has partially recovered and I no longer receive dialysis. Four hours into my surgical recover I had a bleed into the right side of my brain keeping me from being fully aware for two and one half months. Upon waking I required 6 months of rehabilitation therapy to maximize the use of my legs.
The surgery and recovery created a major drain on our financial resources that continue even today. Till now we have retain this information but now prompted to reach out to you my Facebook family for help. Any amount is a tremendous help.

Oh my goodness! I have long searched for Mrs. Lula and just tonight, as I was clearing out my phone in preparation of getting a new one, I found your name, Dwight and was therefore able to 'Google' BOTH of your names and here I am!!! - I had the profound blessing of meeting your precious Lula in the middle of one very late night while most of UNC Chapel Hill was sleeping!! She and I were doing laundry in the tiny little room just outside of the PICU. - My daughter is an oncology patient and I did not leave her but for short moments. The short time spent with Mrs. Lula that night has never left my heart! She was so uplifting and I cherished our hour or two together! - I am so happy to read you are doing well and praising God for your lifesaving liver (and for the family who so selflessly donated it to you!) - Please give your beautiful wife my love! - Pam S. (living just across the mountain from you in Maggie Valley!) God's blessings!
