Bertha Goeckerman Liver Transplant

Since 2009 my mom has been battling Primary Billary Cirrhosis (http://www.liverfoundation.org/abouttheliver/info/pbc/), The last 6 months the disease has progressed and now her kidney's are failing. She will be getting dialysis and will be at the top of the translant list for a liver. However long this will take to get a liver the medical bills and medications are just adding up. My mom has been on a feeding tube for about 6 weeks and Medicare will not cover the expense. We have received charity  to cover the last 30 days but that will only last for so long. Once my mom receives a transplant there will be even more expenses. Since her kiddneys's are failing now they are excepting her to also need a kidney transplant. I will post more about her condition and what is happening as soon as I have more informaton.

Thank you so  much for taking the time to read this
