liver transplant needed

I have been a single parent to this wonderful young man since day one. He has lost his grandpa who was the only father figure he knew when he was a young teen. He has had several pets die and I remember him saying "everything I love dies" He has blossomed and grown into a hard working respectful man. When he was younger he was obese I managed to get him into a medical study at Morton Plant/ Columbia Presbyterian traveling back and forth through all weathers he found success as the number one in his group. Again between the two of us he graduated college now works at sea and is home once a year. I have not wanted to worry him with my health issues, but now find I need a liver transplant brought on by two bouts of Hepatitis as a child and recently being diagnosed with Hemochromotosis an inherited condition which gone undetected for 60 years contributed to the destruction of my Liver. I will not be able to work much longer and face mountains of tests, treatment and hopefully a transplant. I implore the compassionate for help. I want to see my child.
