Hello Mischa and Dansbrother,
I wrote to you earlier today and somehow I see it never made it! With my brain fog I may have hit cancel. Anyways here we go ! Mischa, Wills dad has lost 75lbs since Christmas, He did alot of research and found out he could be a Live Donor, However, Dr's. say that it is not an option at this time! No Medicaid will not pay for Live Liver transplant nor will the donors Insurance. It is all on your husband like it is all on my Will . Corp. Ins. with million dollar Min. coverage and no limit to Transplant's. Yes, I found out threw Lifelink that the statistics showed that Live Liver Donors because it is a major organ a few have died! Dr's try and talk you out of if their reason is they only have 1 patient not 2 . Supposidly all of Florida is ban or will be from doing Live Liver Transplants and most other States now that has nothing to do with any other organs! I have been told they do it in India, i really don't see us doing that and Will say's no way will someone even his Dad give up their Life for his. He's going to BEAT this fight! Good luck to you as well, My son is not as sick as your husband. I hope you get listed and get that needed Liver as I would wish the say for all that needs one! It's tragic someone has to Die to save our own! It is so not fare! Now, is where I get angry at our Govn't Dansbrother, You are so right! It is pathetic that if my son were an Illegal Alien or a Prisoner he would get help! Will has been 20 yrs. in remmission from AML Leukemia he's 22 as of Tuesday! Due to the fact he does have a history of illness, considering his age, weight and job history he still can preform lighter workloads they do not consider him disabled.SSI denied SAME statement with Medicaid except the form also said we were late as we only had 10 day's to reply I faxed it over same week we got it! I will have to write more later ! Night All.
