I too have this disease and it is no fun at all. Any help this man gets will surely help him. Fortunately I live in a Country/Province (BC, Canada)where the Health System pays for everything when we are disabled and unable to work - even those still able to work can receive assistance for a percentage based on income. After spending time in the US I am so very glad I came back to Canada before being diagnosed with PBC. Good luck Deke...Godspeed!

Judeye, do you know just how much B.S. your passing around w/ your beloved "Adorable health care. Have you ever heard what the medical profession, the Drs. not the fundraisers, have to say? Lets see how much you love it after a couple of months into 2014. Obama is an egotist and Pelosi and Reid are his henchmen.

My deepest sympathies and best wishes in obtaining the life saving liver transplant. I know what he and his family must be going through, as one of my friends just passed away from liver damage due to Hep C. My prayers are with him and his family.

"Starting in 2014, health insurance companies won't be able to turn you down or charge you more for health insurance just because you have a medical condition. They also can’t make you wait before getting or continuing treatment, and they can't drop your coverage." Hope the Affordable Care Act will help. Under this act, people just like Deke will NO longer be denied or charged higher premiums or cut off when they hit the limes on care. Yes the ACA really will save lives. Some of them just might be our own family, friends or neighbors.
