Friends of Fred: Success Story Indeed!

Fred brochure

Fred was recently featured in the HCG, The Specialist in Cancer Care, brochure!  Those of us who know Fred personally are extremely grateful for everyone’s financial support which allowed him to have the liver transplant and that Fred is doing well back in Uganda living life with his biological family and Peace Corps family.

Below is the insert in the brochure about Fred:

When a son gave life back to his father 45-year-old Frederick came to us with fever, jaundice and pain in the abdomen. After a series of scans, we diagnosed him with sclerosing cholangitis – a disease of the bile ducts in the liver. His son, who had just turned 18, donated a part of his liver for the surgery. After a successful twelve-and-a-half-hour long surgery, Frederick had recovered, and was able to go home with his son within nine days of surgery.”
