Meet Richard: Liver Transplant Gives Jacksonville Man New Hope, Twice

By Mayo Clinic Transplant Staff, @mayoclinictransplantstaff

Meet Richard. Richard’s path to transplantation began when he started experiencing problems related to hepatitis C. When Richard’s liver became too damaged to function, he was placed on the organ donation waiting list and moved from his home in Maine to Jacksonville to increase his odds of receiving a liver more quickly.

In Jacksonville, Richard became a Mayo Clinic patient and received his first gift of life in 2007. But that’s only half of the story. Read about Richard’s journey to a second transplant, and how he’s doing today.

Read Richard’s full story.
