A life-changing request if there ever was any…please read it and if you feel comfortable, please pass it along to your social networks. The more people who see this, the more chances Tommy will have for a donor.
You all know Tommy Dobranski:
husband, dad, pop-pop, son, brother, family man, colleague, and friend to many.
You may also know or perhaps you are just finding out, he has been very sick with liver cancer.
This cancer has been treated through several ablations, embolizations and immunotherapy, to control tumor growth.
Tom is doing the work, but he needs some help, and he is certainly hopeful and
determined to beat this.
We know it’s a lot to ask, but would anyone be interested in learning more about being his living donor?
Simply put, we need someone soon who is a blood type match: A-, A+ or O and is willing to donate a piece of his or her liver to save his life.
Another main criterion is you need to be between the ages of 18 to 55 years old.
