My husband, Mark Miller was diagnosed with end stage liver disease last year. He is now on the transplant list. As you can imagine this has been a very stressful time for our family. It has also been very difficult trying to keep up with all the medical expenses from the specialists co-pays, medication expenses and my taking off work to travel 2 1/2 hours one way to visit the Hepatologist in the area. With that being said, we have several required hoops to jump thru before the transplant can take place. One of which, we have to set up a fund with a minimum of $2,500 for post-surgery expenses. This is required because of extremely expensive medications required afterwards. For example: his co-pay for the anti-rejection drug (Valcyte) is $1,130 for a 30 day supply. He will need this medication for 3-6 months. This doesn't include the other 2 meds that he will take rest of his life at $100 each per month or the time that I will have to take off work initially to care for him.
Please keep Mark and our family in your thoughts and prayers. We sincerely appreciate your support.
