I'm a 19 year old currently battling cancer and received a liver transplant last year. In January 2014, I was diagnosed with a rare form of adolescent liver cancer called Fibrolamellar HCC. Because it was found so late and already spread into my heart and lungs, I had only weeks to live. Luckily, a surgeon at UCLA took on my case and gave me another chance at life by giving me a liver transplant and open heart surgery.
Currently, I am undergoing chemotherapy to treat the remainder of the tumors in my lungs. Through this sudden turn in life, I’ve decided to start a website to help other patients who are going through a transplant in the hopes that sharing the knowledge and tools I have gained through my experience will benefit others.
It is very difficult to work a “traditional” job while I am on chemotherapy because the side effects are somewhat unpredictable. This is why I am asking the community to help me fund this website. I truly believe that it will change the way people are educated about the transplant process and how patients interact with each other socially.
No donation is too small. Thank you :)
