  • WVU Pharmacy Student in need of Help and Support

    WVU Pharmacy Student in need of Help and Support

    One of our #pharmily members needs our help and support. in 2013, Anthony Berberich was diagnosed with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (LivingWithPSC.org), which is an autoimmune disease of the liver. His family recently shared that his condition has deteriorated to the end stage of liver disease and that he is in need of a liver transplant as soon as possible. Unfortunately, none of his immediate family meets the criteria to be a donor. They are searching for someone who is willing to share part of their liver (which does regrow) to save Anthony's life. The donor should be A+, A-, O+ or O-.  They are asking people to share this information on their Facebook pages in the hopes of finding someone willing to help save Anthony’s life. For those interested in learning more about being a donor you can speak confidentially with a transplant team member at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center at 412.647.5800 or visit http://upmc.com/services/transplant/liver/living-donor
