With a note from Chicago's Jaundice Jill, the Chopped Liver community has grown by one more member. Jill,who's my age, wrote to say she recently became a live donor liver recipient. Like Joe, she had primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) but with a nasty dose of bile duct cancer to boot. Her boyfriend was her donor (now THAT's a relationship!) and, happily, both are well and she's already back to work. Stop by her blog if you're interested in the perspective from her side of the PSC/liver donation fence.
In January 2006 I successfully donated half my liver to my brother, Joe. This blog began in November 2005, when I was just a hopeful donor candidate, and continues today as a vehicle for sharing my experience and building community among past, current, and would-be live organ donors and transplant recipients.

In 2007 I founded the Greatest Gift Foundation, which provides information and support to living organ donors throughout their transplant experience. I'm in Minneapolis, when I'm not traveling the country meeting with transplant teams. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
