A new Liver for John, medical

     John was born in Chicago, Illinoins. He was raised here in Las Vegas. He has a wife, Judy 55, a son...John Jr. age 37, and a daughter...Amanda age 27. He works at Circus Circus Hotel and Casino as a kitchen worker for the last 25 years. His favorite past time is to spend time with his Mom helping her and spending time with his partner in crime "Thor", our dog. He also has that tinkering thing that men do in the garage, always something new! His biggest things these days that he enjoys is Life itself to the smallest and finer degrees that most take for granted. The biggest light of his life is his children. He can't seem to love them enough! I think all parents understand and know that feeling. Every moment is very precious to him these days.
       My husband John contracted Hepatitis C and fought it for many years. They finally got it cured but during the long process it left him with cirohis (sp) of the liver. That liver now has a cancerous growth on it which places him in the position of needing a new liver. He is on the transplant list. Once that becomes available, we will need finances to live in Los Angeles for 3 months till he's cleared to go home, here in Las Vegas, NV. I think everyone knows how expensive California is. During this three months we will also need to pay the mortgage and bills till we return home.He's a husband, a father, a son, a sibling, an uncle and a great friend with a huge heart. Needless to say we all love him very much. I don't need to tell anyone how precious life is while we all face hard times these days thru this recession, so I understand if you can't help. We would just pray for everyone's thoughts and prayers. For those who can help there are no words to thank thank you enough. Your heart is Huge as well. Thank you for taking the time to read this and May God Bless you All! Sincerely Judy D. Cobb (Walker)
P.S. If everyone that could donate just $1.oo I know we could reach our goal. One dollar may not seem like much but it adds up if everyone can pitch in. We can save a man's life.
