After encouragement from friends, we decided to setup a gofundme to help with the medical & related bills.
My husband and I have been married 27 years and have 6 wonderful children. Gregg and I are very close, so it was hard when Gregg had an 11 hour plus liver transplant surgery at Cleveland Clinic on December 6th. The surgery was successful but due to complications with his heart and kidneys he was in a medically induced coma for several days to heal and recover.
Gregg was diagnosed with NASH, non-alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver, about 4 years ago, and then placed on the liver transplant list later on.
Gregg spent 40 days in the hospital becuase of several "bumps" along the way of recovery. Now the bills are piling up from the long hospital stay, to the many doctor followup visits, going back in the hospital again after being released, copays, expensive prescription drugs, physical and occupational therapy, and expenses my wife incurred while driving 50 miles up to Cleveland Clinic (gas, parking, food). Most of Gregg's doctor's appointments are at the Cleveland Clinic.
Gregg's kidneys still haven't fully recovered and now the lab work shows that he is eligible to be on the kidney transplant list, so Cleveland Clinic has started that process as well.
Anything you can do to help is appreciated. Gift cards for gas, groceries, and food are good if you would rather do that.
