My name is Jessica Jaramillo Tijerina. My husband Luis Tijerina has been diagnosed with liver of cirrhosis about a year ago. We have been seeing doctors left to right, he has been in and out of the hospital. About 2-3 months ago his score has raised up and they had started the evaluation for him to get on the transplant list.. Well just the other day the clinic in San Antonio called and said that put him on the list cause his score had gotten higher. They had to call the insurance company to see if they would approve the surgery. They denied to help us. So we got a call today from his Walmart benefits and they said that we would have to go to a Mayo Clinic, which there are 3 of them and they are Minnesota, Arizona, or Florida. They will help cover everything that he needs to have done. We haven't set up everything yet but we will be doing this as soon as possible, due to the fact that we dont know when his levels are gonna get any higher. We will be leaving soon for tests to start the whole pre-evaluation process again since we are going to a new place. He had the evaluation done to get on the list in SA, but now since we have to go to another state he has to do the process again at the Mayo Clinic. This has been quite a year and very stressful cause we never know what will happen from one day to the next. We have been just taking one day at a time. When this does happen which is gonna happen soon, we will not be able to work so it will be hard to pay our bills and take care of our children. We have 4 boys and our nephew that lives with us. So Im asking for any type of donation that would help us out and will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Thank you to my family and friends that know what we have been dealing with.
