Dear Family and Friends,
Please help spread the word about my 25 year old daughter, Heather's medical situation and critical need for a live liver donor transplant.
Heather is a wonderful, caring young woman who has shown amazing grace throughout this difficult time. She is my husband's and my only child and is a daughter dearly loved. Seven years ago Heather was diagnosed with a rare liver disease called Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis. It's a progressive illness that destroys the liver ducts and despite everyone's best efforts it could not be stopped.
As a result Heather is currently listed for a liver transplant at Henry Ford Hospital in Michigan. The doctors recommend a live donor to give Heather the best chance for survival, due to the critical shortage of cadaver livers available. Rick, my husband, and I would love to be her donor, but we are not a blood match so we are seeking people who are.
Heather needs someone with O blood type (either negative or positive). who is willing to be tested to be a live liver donor. To learn more about donating please call the Henry Ford transplant coordinator Arlene Helms 313-916-9882 on behalf of Heather Erickson.
We understand a living donation may not be an an option for everyone and respect it's a personal decision.
As always with love,
Cathy and Rick Erickson
Family is a circle of strength and love!
To my blogging friends and readers thank you for your support. I appreciate your kind words and prayers.
