I am here to ask for help with donations and I am hoping you all can assist me. Recently, my family found out that my mom, Annette Hooper, has cirrhosis (non-alcohol induced). In 2007, my mom was diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis. Since then, it has gradually progressed to a Severe End Stage Liver Disease. My mom has been living with limited abilities and has been told that only about 15% of her liver is functioning. This has caused several life-threatening incidents where she was hospitalized for weeks at a time.
We have made several trips to Aurora. CO, where she has been seen by doctors and surgeons who have evaluated her liver and have begun to prepare her for a liver transplant. Due to a long list of patients waiting on the list for liver transplants, my mom was instructed to consider seeking a live donor for herself. Presently, my eldest brother (Manuel) has been and is eligible to donate due to them sharing the same blood type. On behalf of my family, I am asking for donations to assist us with the post operation care of both my mom and Manuel. Both will need family to care for them outside of the hospital however, my mom will need to remain in Aurora for approximately three months following the transplant.
Our goal is to reach $10,000.00 which will assist us in travelling to and from our respective homes in New Mexico as we schedule the post operation care among family members. Aside from the traveling, we will need money for basic living expenses. Any help we get is very much appreciated.
God bless you all and thank you for your time, monetary contributions and prayers.
