I have a very good friend that,well I concider him to be a part of my family. Its been a year now that he has been told he had Cirrhosis of the Liver.I have been taking care of him, this last time he has been in the hospital for a month and the doctor has told him if he didnt get a liver soon he is going to die.I understand that he did this to his self but it isnt right for a doctor to tell him this and then tell him that he will be the last one on the list to get one.I have allways told him if it was at all posible I would be a Live donor for him.We are the same blood type but I dont know what else that they have to cross match. I guess what I am asking is for someone to tell me how this works. p.s I am not a drinker, healthy liver.View Thread
