James Scott, III
Transplant Type: Liver
What if you were living on borrowed time?
James Scott is fighting for his life. In 1996, he was diagnosed with hepatitis C. James underwent harvoni treatment in 2014, which cured the hepatitis, but the damage to his liver was significant. Now, he is suffering from end-stage liver disease, and doctors say a liver transplant is critical to his survival.
During such a challenging time, James is thankful for the people that he has been able to reconnect with in his life- his girlfriend, Gale, Daughter, Jennifer, and granddaughter, Arianna. He wishes they didn’t have to be so concerned about his health, but he is grateful for their love and support. Before his health began to decline, James enjoyed shooting pool, bowling, and cooking, but these days, his activities are quite limited. James looks forward to the transplant that will allow him to live his life with as few limitations as possible, and to spend many more years making memories with his family, but right now, he needs your help.
Unfortunately, James’ hope for a new life comes at a very high price.
The average liver transplant costs approximately $878,000. And that’s only the beginning. Even with health insurance, which will cover a portion of the transplant costs, he faces significant expenses related to the surgery. For the rest of his life, he will need follow-up care and daily anti-rejection medications. Post-transplant medications are very expensive, and they’re as critical to his survival as the transplant itself.
You can help by making a tax-deductible donation to the National Foundation for Transplants in honor of James.
