Local Woman in Need of a Liver Transplant
Amy Gollay of Lake Ann in Benzie County is desperately hoping and praying for a liver transplant. Right now, Amy’s fighting an advanced form of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Amy’s symptoms started about a year ago when she was having major digestive issues and after several tests and hospitalizations, she received her diagnosis.
In order for Amy to receive a liver transplant, she either needs someone to have passed away to donate their organ or needs a live donor who can donate part of their liver. Amy’s blood type is O-Positive but positive or negative will work in this case. If a confirmed donor is found, surgery is set to take place at the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor.
For information about helping Amy with her liver transplant, you can email Amy’s husband, Chuck at Chuck@ChuckGollay.com
