Debra's fight for liver transplant
Organized by: Linda Seabury
My Sister who is my very best friend is one of the most giving person you would ever meet. 20 years ago she gave birth to a beautiful baby boy but there were complications and she need blood.
Unfortunately for her, and many other innocent victims, donated blood was contaminated with hepatitis C. (Donated blood was not properly screened until the late 1980's.)The hepatitis has been eating away at her liver for almost 30 years, On April 10th 2015 she was admitted to Jackson memorial Hospital in Miami Fl. for kidney and liver failure.
She has tubes coming from everywhere, She is unable to feed herself, urinate or other bodily functions because things have shut down. Machines are acting in the place of her liver, kidneys and breathing, she is in and out of consciousness. when I saw her she opened her eyes wide and had this look that was so heart breaking. Her eyes glassy and seem to say Linda please help me, her head and hand shaking as if she had Parkinson's disease. she struggled to lift her head but couldn't she couldn't speak, she just stared as if she wanted me to put her out of her misery.
It is so hard to write this, It hurts so bad to see her in this state I love her so much and I don't want to lose her. I want to be by her side every waking moment. But I am not financially equip to stay there. I am begging for help because these donations will be our only source of income of help so that myself and her daughter can be there for her.
We live in Georgia, but she is in Miami for the transplant, her daughter has driven to Miami to be by her mother's side but she sleeps in her car because she/we cannot afford hotel cost. The hospital resource center told us that she will be there for 3 months; we can stay in a hotel for a hundred dollars a day but we do not have enough money to do that for 3 months.
Your Donations are critical, they will for us to pay for the hotel which is $9000.00.We will be eternally grateful for your unselfish donations to help us to be there by her side.
