I am a 49 yr old male from Wauwatosa , WI. I was diagnosed with PSC almost 20 yrs ago. I am divorced and I have three children. My transplant was August 5th 2015 at Northwestern Memorial in Chicago IL. The last 12 months before my transplant where a whirlwind... Going between three transplant centers and trying to stay upright. I was in a bad way. My oldest son was my donor. The boy saved my life. He never flinched.
Share your interests and hobbies
I like to golf...bike..and hit flea markets.. Two boys in college and another in middle school...getting healthy and strong enough to return to work is a priority right now.
