Hello, My name is Douglas Woods, a 56-year-old man who is very ill. A liver transplant is my only hope to extend my life after years of struggling with chronic end stage liver disease. Transplantation is lifesaving but the cost can be overwhelming. I cannot meet this challenge on my own. I need your help.

I was born and raised in Detroit, MI. I became a Union Iron worker of Local 25 in 1978.

I have undergone extensive testing at the University of Kentucky Transplant Center and fortunately doctors feel I am a good candidate for a liver transplant. I am now on the waiting list until a good match is found. However, even with insurance, I am facing very high expenses out-of-pocket including the astronomical cost of post-transplant anti-rejection medications I’ll need to take for the rest of my life, lab fees, co-pays and more.

To help with this financial burden of my uninsured expenses, a fundraising campaign in my honor has been established with HelpHOPELive, a trusted nonprofit organization that has been providing community-based fundraising guidance to patients and their families for more than 30 years. All donations are tax deductible, are held by HelpHOPELive in the South-Atlantic Liver Transplant Fund, and are administered by HelpHOPELive for transplant-related expenses only. Please consider a contribution.

1800 Calorie Diet for Type 2 Diabetes

I learned type 2 diabetes has attacked my body. The doctor has started me on Januvia and Metformin with a 1800 calories diet per day. Eating without/cutting back on sugar has a learning curve. Calories 578, Carbs 107.76 and sugar 45.70 today as of 9:40PM.

Tiffany Pierce offers hope to fellow liver transplant patients at UCHealth

Hero Tiffany Pierce is lucky to be alive and her experience is providing other Coloradans with hope.
“Sometimes, I think it just helps the patient to hear that someone else has gone through the very road they’re going through,” said Pierce.
Pierce is a liver transplant recipient herself. In 2013, she was very sick, and running low on hope and time.
“I was given a 90 days to live,” said Pierce.
Which meant getting her affairs in order.
“I did some things with my kids, filled them in that I may not be around much longer,” explained Pierce.
But a liver transplant match was located and her surgery was a success.
“Life did a 180, which was fantastic.  I got my life back,” said Pierce.
So, Pierce started volunteering at the very place that changed her life — The University of Colorado Hospital Transplant Center. She gives her time once a week, answering questions, providing hope and offering encouragement.
“Tiffany is amazing.  She is able to connect with people, really, that no one else can,” said Jenny Ricklefs, Volunteer Manager, University of Colorado Hospital.
“The patients just need to get some things off their chest and that’s what I’m there for,” said Pierce.
Tiffany Pierce’s life was saved by an organ transplant and then enriched by giving back.
“Volunteering is the light of my week.  This is the day I look forward to every week,” said Pierce.
