My big brother, Shane Straub, received a liver transplant on 1/29/14 at Hershey Medical Center.  He was taking a supplement from GNC called OxyElite Pro which was later recalled for causing liver failure.  The doctors determined from his biopsy that was the cause of his liver failure.  He has a two year old son, Myles, with fiancé, Elisa.  Since his transplant, he has hit every bump in the road.  He was sent home and later that night, life flighted back to Hershey for emergency surgery.  They found he has CRE bacteria in his blood, liver and tissues, which is resistant to antibiotics.  They had to have an antibiotic flown in from France and we are waiting to see if this works.  This is their last option to treat the infection.  Your donations are so appreciated, The Lord always provides!  Thank you all so much for your financial support but mostly for your prayers for Shane! It is more appreciated than you know!
