My lovely wife and friend Pam has liver cancer.  She was diagnosed with liver disease about 10 years ago--non-alcoholic cirrhosis, an autoimmune disease.  But on our last visit to Mayo they found cancer.   It was known a transplant would be needed at some point.  She has been seeing a specialist at the Mayo Clinic Rochester for the last 10 years.  Due to the many symptoms that have greatly dimished her quality of life, she has not been able to work for at least the last two years. 

This has been hard for her, as she had to resign her position at US Bank as project analyst which kept her occupied and busy each day.   Having two grandkids, Kylie 11 and Zachary 15, and having them tell her they wished she could do stuff with them is heartbreaking for her. 

Pam was diagnosed with liver cancer on our latest trip down in mid-December.  She was placed on the transplant list about 2 yrs ago, but instead of a deceased donor liver which is far more common, it had to be a living donor.  So she had to find her own donor match.  Mayo had told us liver patients hardly ever find a living donor.   By a miracle, my son Jonny (25), Pam's stepson, graciously volunteered to be screened a year and a half ago, the first one.  He passed most things on the list, but was told it wasn't a good time.  He rescreened this fall and was approved as a match just in November!  The first person  being screened being a match is almost impossible odds.  Like a million to one.  We see this as a miracle, and believe it is meant to be, and is the way He has planned it to be.  We are told it is a good time to go ahead with the transplant.    Surgery has been scheduled for January 30th, just a few short weeks away. 

Naturally, it is both an exciting as well as anxious time.  We are thrilled that after suffering for years with this disease, that Pam will get her life back, feel better almost instantly, and be able to finally enjoy the simple things in life, such as going on a bike ride or going swimming with the grandchildren.  

Funds will be used for medical expenses, Jonny's living expenses (he'll be off work up to 6 weeks) and accomodations/living expenses in Rochester post-surgery (she's there for about 4 weeks after surgery).

If you feel led to give you may do so here.  Or if you prefer you may donate via PayPal by sending it to greg.moll@rollaramp.com.   Feel free to share with others.

Hooray! Today's the day. Pam gets to go home. They've agreed to let her get treatment at home with home health care. Nice. We'll come back on three weeks to recheck the leak which is slowly healing. She is anxiously excited. Thank you for all the prayers and support.lppp

Another week...Today is Thursday, March 16th. We have been down here now for 7 weeks on Monday. Mayo wants to keep Pam another week; to monitor the leak from just after the surgery. It must heal to get cut loose. Things are going along, and progress at a slow pace. The body is healing itself, and rebuilding the temple and it just takes time. We are doing well, Pam is a little weak and a bit tired, but she is getting regular walking, and is eating ok, and working on getting stronger.
