My Dad needs a liver

Hi, my name is Monica Garcia. My father, Rolando Rosa, is a patient in urgent need of a liver transplant that is now being denied due to the presence of cannabinoids, CBD & THC, in the bloodstream. After being seen and undergoing numerous tests to be cleared for the liver transplant to take place at Methodist  Dallas Medical Hospital Liver Institute, the review committee has determined that no further treatment, including the life-saving operation will be offered. We do not have much time!
 
During this time, I have contacted advocacy groups to help me with this matter. When contacted by a third party and myself, the liver coordinator in charge of my dad's case, is now stating that he was denied due to non-compliance/non-disclosure. This is not the initial reason she gave us when asked why he was denied. Yes, my father was taking cbd/thc to alleviate the pain from his failing health. Yes, he was scared to disclose this information. The opioids prescribed to him were inducing his hepatic encephalopathy. They are stating that my father was non-compliant due to issues other than the cbd/thc. If my father was so non-compliant, why was he being prepped and undergoing numerous testing to undergo the liver transplant? Why was the transplant team informing his family to be prepared for this life changing surgery, until the positive THC results came in?  Their story has changed, but we are still moving forward with my dads transplant search.

He said he isn't giving up hope and neither are we, but we need your help. We are raising funds for medical expenses and travel costs as we search fo a new liver healthcare provider. Rolando's wife is the sole provider, and your donations will help our family manage this unforeseen challenge.
 
I am so grateful that you took the time to read this. If anyone has any information about a liver transplant hospital that will save my father's life, please share that information! Any amount that you can give will help us. God Bless and please share this story!!

My dad is still receiving care at Methodist Dallas for follow-up care. We have not been able to seek another facility due to insurance issues. When we receive word that we will be seen by a in-network, I will update everyone. Thank you and continue to donate or share.
