Mississippi Grandmother Waiting for Liver Transplant

October 23, 2009

NFT patient Cindy Franklin need a liver transplant to survive. Last year, this Mississippi resident was diagnosed with Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency, a genetic liver disease. Her brother, David, died from the disease the same year Cindy was diagnosed. Doctors say a liver transplant is her only hope for a second chance at life.

This mother and grandmother is a survivor and is determined to fight her disease so she can spend many more years with her family. Cindy hopes to have her health restored so she can return to the activities she enjoys, like working with the children's ministry at church and singing in a gospel group. She looks forward to the lifesaving transplant that will allow her to spend more time with her family and watch her three young grandchildren grow up.
