Mark, iwould love to go but it is on Saturday the day after my shot. These past weeks my mental health has. Improved since I have been working in the yard-an hour today and taking 5,000 iu a day of vit d3. I was low for the third time. So, I have also been laying I n the sun-10min on each side.    I have been eating red meat everyday for the past few weeks and noticed my anemia isn't  as bad as it had been.  But with 3 more days of incivek my itching has increased.  Did you exercise during tx?  Christel

I did exercise during treatment, although it was a very hit and miss affair. I tried to let the way I felt dictate what  I tried to do, good days I took advantage of. Is the sun helping your rash? It sure helped mine. Hang in there, life gets much better after incivek...Mark

Thanks for posting!

* More than 115,000 people in the United States are currently on the waiting list for a lifesaving organ transplant.
* Another name is added to the national transplant waiting list every 12 minutes.
* On average, 18 people die every day from the lack of available organs for transplant.
* Seven percent of people on the waiting list—more than 6,500 each year—die before they are able to receive a transplant.
* One deceased donor can save up to eight lives through organ donation and can save and enhance more than 100 lives through the lifesaving and healing gift of tissue donation.
* Organ recipients are selected based primarily on medical need, location and compatibility.
* To date, 461,776 transplants have occurred in the U.S. since 1988.
* Organs that can be donated after death are the heart, liver, kidneys, lungs, pancreas and small intestines. Tissues include corneas, skin, veins, heart valves, tendons, ligaments and bones.
* The cornea is the most commonly transplanted tissue. More than 40,000 corneal transplants take place each year in the United States.
* A healthy person can become a ‘living donor’ by donating a kidney, or a part of the liver, lung, intestine, blood or bone marrow.
* More than 6,000 living donations occur each year. One in four donors is not biologically related to the recipient.

Liver cancer patients in need of an organ transplant face a cruel catch-22 -- in the time spent waiting for a new liver from a deceased donor, their cancer can spread until it's too late. With two kids to raise and the clock ticking down, Amy Baghdadi got hopeful news and a life-changing offer from a family friend. Watch Baghdadi's story about her living liver transplant performed by UCSF's husband and wife surgical team -- Dr. Nancy Ascher and Dr. John Roberts.
