Live Donor Needed – URGENT

Live Donor Needed – URGENT

To the NEPA Community,

Our 11-month-old son, Noam (Michael) has a rare liver disease, Biliary Atresia.  Noam already had a surgery when he was 5 weeks old, but the surgery wasn’t successful.  Noam needs a liver transplant and he is currently listed in UNOS for a liver transplant. We are looking for a live donor for him (with a liver transplant, only part of the liver from the donor is used)

The donor must be blood type O positive/negative.

A few things to know:

  1. Since he’s a baby, they prefer people under the age of 30, but obviously, they’ll check anyone who is willing to get tested under the age of 50.
  2. The recovery time is different between each person; usually, it’s around 5 days at the hospital, 2-3 weeks until feeling “Normal” and they have restrictions for 3 months not to carry more than 1 gallon.
  3. Everything for the donor is under Noam’s insurance, testing, recovery and follow-up appointments regarding the transplant

If you are interested in filling the Living Donor Health Screening Questionnaire-2-1-16 and getting, tested we would truly appreciate it.

Please help us find a liver for our son!

Thank you,

Nofar and Jason Flesher

Recipient name is Michael Flesher
