Medical Expenses - Michael Padilla

D. Michael Padilla has been diagnosed with Hemochromatosis, which causes our body to absorb too much iron.  The excess iron is stored in your organs, especially your liver, heart and pancreas.  This condition is very life-threatening condition.  Over the last few years Michael has been in and out of several hospital trying to figure out what was going on with extensive testing, procedure and injuries due to this condition. Over the last few months he has been told that they have not been able to rejuvenate his liver.  Due to all of this Michael has had to leave his employment and focus on his health.  As of recently he has been placed on a liver transplant list, he will continue to endure more testing and examinations which will be required in Denver, Colorado.  Any type of donation will be greatly appreciated to help with travel and medical expense.
