In April 2012 Greg was diagnosed with chirrosis of the liver and hepatitis-c.  He is currently on the transplant lists at UCSF for both liver and kidney. He has been unable to work since July 2012. Additionally he had a heart attack last January which required a 10 day stay in the hospital.  He spent 5 days in the hospital in September 2012 and just this last week as well due to complications of the chirroses.

While we are blessed that I have a wonderful job with health insurance, the co-payments for office visits ($30), meds - 14 right now ($10-$35 each), weekly special procedures ($30-$200 each), weekly lab work ($10), weekly ER visits for last 6 weeks ($100)  and hospital stays ($400/day) really add up. In addition to medical there are other associated costs. Travel (gas, bridge toll, parking) to all his appointments in Napa, Vallejo and UCSF, accommodations/meals for me when he is hospitalized, etc.  Disability and my income are not enough to cover all this and keep up on our monthly bills.

Greg received his transplant on March 5th.  We are so very grateful to the unselfish gift we received from our donor and family!  Greg has had several speed bumps on his road to recovery.  He is says it feels more like moguls. With each "bump" comes more trips to San Francisco, more time off work and more hospital stays.  He still has a couple of issues to iron out but we have faith that he will get better and better as time goes on.

So many of you have asked what you can do to help. Perhaps this is a way.  If you feel moved and are able, we would appreciate any and all donations towards Greg's medical costs and related expenses. We encourage you to share this page with your family and friends as well.

We thank you with love and God's blessings.  Greg, Andi and Alana
