Maggie, hope your transplant became a reality. I agree, the author of the comment regarding the program and her father is really unbelievable, so selfish. I wrote a reply below. I received a liver transplant and I found the screening very detailed and comprehensive. I was removed from the list when there was a there was a untrue comment made by a CNA regarding my use of alcohol while on the list. After the rumor was found to be completely unfounded I was reinstated on the list. Hope you are enjoying a new life.View Thread
your compassion is remarkable. In medical profession, those that are trying to help your father it is believed that addiction is a disease. This is not a selective process, it is a program that is managed with guidelines that were agreed and accepted by those who have the experience and knowledge to make those decisions/guidelines. Your opinion is well taken but it also comes with a great amount of judgement. I accept your argument regarding how the program is set up but your lack of gratitude you show for your father receiving the liver is truly appalling. It takes very selfish person to has no compassion for the deceased person and their family who gave your father life. Your whole comment is disgusting and reeks of I I I/ me me me. You must be a republican.View Thread
