Mother of Two Needs a New Liver!

Maria’s busy life of work, family, and sports came to a halt when she was diagnosed with cirrhosis in January of 2014. Things took a turn for the worse in May of 2015 when the doctors told Maria that she needs a liver transplant. As she waits for a donor, the medical bills are escalating.

It has been almost 4 months that Maria had her Liver Transplant surgery. The first month her body was acting a little strange and kidney's didn't want to work well, but that is normal due to the side effects of medications and also her body getting used to a new organ. She also lost her health insurance from her previous job but thanks to God her husband was able to add her to his insurance policy. It has a higher deductibles and more money is taken out of his paycheck, but we are glad his job was able to add her to his insurance. She is at her Venice, FL home with her family recuperating day by day. Sometimes she feels very tired and her body hurts but she is a very strong women and with the support and prayers from her family and friends she will continue with her recovery each and everyday. On October 20, 2016 she will be going back to Gainesville, FL to the Shands Hospital, she will have a biopsy done. Thanks to everyone that continues to prayed for her and family and for the amazing support. Words cannot described how much we appreciated everyone. Love you all, God bless. #MariaRstrong

It has been 3 weeks that Maria had her Liver Transplant, so far her liver is functioning very well. She is continuing to recover slowly but steady. So far the only problem she is having right now is that she is retaining lots of fluids. Doctors are changing her medications to balance her liver, kidney and other organs, and soon they will find out what is causing her to retain fluids. Please everyone continued praying for her and the family. Thanks for all of your suport. #MariaRstrong
