The Story of a Woman in Dare Need of Kidney Transplant.
The story of Erika Zak, the woman who is in dare need of a kidney transplant first appeared on CNN, on a lengthy article written Wayne Drash.
According to the report, Erika have since last year made preparation that include moving closer to a place near the Cleveland Clinic where she intended to have a liver transplant that could save her life.
Although they expected their short relocation to last about three to five months before she would get a new liver and begin the slow process of recovery. Instead, she’s been mired in the bureaucratic process of who gets an organ and who dies.

I wish organ donation was mandatory. So many people don’t donate for the dumbest reasons. I am registered and I hope more will read the article and change their minds. Erika, I hope you get the liver you need and live many long, happy years with your husband and daughter 💕

I read about this and it brought me to tears. I hope you get the liver you need. This is so horrible the wait people have. We have to come up with quicker better ways to help people. Stay strong and keep fighting!, hopefully you get it soon.

I’m not sure if I read the article right but it looks like she did get approval, albeit much later than she should’ve. So, it seems like she’s waiting for an available liver now? It seemed like she needed a full liver transplant not one from a living donor? Can you clarify?
