Thank you for taking a moment for reading about our situation. My Lovely wife Maria, who is only 44 years old is in dire need of a liver transplant, but I digress....
Not having any health insurance, Maria, who suffers from psoriasis, went to a local state funded clinic to try to get her psoriasis under control. There they put her on 3 nine month treatments of Embrel to ease the pain of psoriasis (which develops lesions on the bone as well as the skin) In order for the Embrel to be effective, it lowers the body's own immune system to be able to fight off anything.
In the process of treating her psoriasis, the clinic failed to check her liver enzymes, and the whole treatment led to lower her livers' effectiveness to the point of developing cirrhosis of the liver.
With no insurance, we hope to reach out to our friends and family to help fund a liver donor transplant. We are financially responsible for each biopsy(just to find a compatible match) as well as for the surgeries for both the donor and for Maria, if a suitable and agreeable donor is found.
Please help us to be able to achieve this miracle, for Maria to be able to see her grand babies grow and remember her....Any consideration towards this goal will be humbly and gratefully appreciated.
Thanking you in advance,
Rick and Maria Bouman
