Liv the Liver and Nikki
Diagnosed at age 13 with Auto-Immune Hepatitis Type 2, Sjogren's Syndrome, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus, I was in rough shape. After 6 years of waiting for my sick liver to give, it finally did. I started getting very sick in May of 2017. Kansas turned me away from their transplant program due to my use of THC to control the pain and stomach issues no doctor would. My levels were high and with my liver in bad shape it would be a long time before my system cleared up. I made my way to St. Louis. They. Kindly and quietly ignored my high THC levels and began testing me for listing. By July, I had been through it all and they listed me just in time to save me from the certain impending coma. I received a liver July 10th 2017. Now, I'm trying to fend off the rejection. It's a long battle but I believe in me.😋
