Four years ago, Kay was officially added to the liver transplant list. She was diagnosed with Primary Scholorsing Cholongitis (PSC) over 20 years ago. PSC is a disease where the bile ducts deteriorate and the liver starts to lose function and die. There is no cure, but a transplant can reverse the effects of a dying liver.
Her best hope was to find a matching living liver donor, but after fours years that had not been going well- until a selfless, incredible young man felt it was his calling to go through the process. A couple weeks ago, the U of M officially cleared Beau Myhre (her daughter Annie's boyfriend) to be her donor!
On 9/11 Kay and Beau will go through the process of a liver transplant.
Annie (her daughter) will be updating this website with news as the journey ahead unfolds. As a family, we feel this is the best way to keep everyone informed.
Our family would like to thank everyone for all the prayers and best wishes -- more will be needed in the coming weeks and months!
It is difficult to explain all the emotions that we are going through. We know that God will see us through this and Kay will be feeling better then she has in a long time.
Thanks for your support, and please check back for updates!
