Dr. David Mulligan, is the Director of the Transplant Center and Chief of Transplant surgery at Mayo Clinic in Arizona, he gives  a overview of the disease Cholangiocarcinoma, also known as bile duct cancer.
This week he transplanted a women that my wife and I lived with at the transplant house....The husband and she had been waiting seven months!  We will forever be Friends with them....Why?  Because we need to keep getting the word out about the donate life program and asking friends to sign their friends up! No one should be put through this!

I've always posted the California site, because we live in district 5 with UNOS and received my transplant through the Mayo clinic....But since we've heard from alot of "Outa Stater's"
Here is the national site. It's easy to do on line... It takes 5 min.  http://www.donatelife.net/
