Enriching Lives Everyday

Georgia Transplant Foundation (GTF) was founded in 1992 to serve Georgia’s solid organ transplant community. It began as one man’s vision for helping others who, like himself, had struggled with the financial challenge of being able to afford expensive daily medications after his kidney transplant.

Recognizing the tremendous financial challenges many people face before, during, and after an organ transplant, Tommy Smith wanted to create an organization that could provide immediate support to recipients and their families in crisis situations and throughout the transplant process. He gather a dedicated team of healthcare professionals, community business leaders, transplant recipients and volunteers, and together they created GTF to improve the quality of life for those affected by transplantation.

Today, GTF is the primary source for transplant patient assistance and support for all solid organ transplantation in Georgia. Our mission is to bridge the gap between hope and opportunity by educating and enriching the lives of those affected by organ transplant. For more information about our financial, educational, and emotional support programs, please visit: https://gatransplant.org.

A dear friend’s uncle posted this recently on Facebook, and I want to share it with as many people as I can. I am a recent organ donor, so I'm not able to help, but I'm reaching far and wide for others who may be able to help save this man's life. *** Dear friends, I hope this note finds you and your family happy, healthy and prosperous during this holiday season. I know we haven’t spoken in a while, but I wanted to take this opportunity to share something with you, based upon our relationship over the years. I’m currently facing a health crisis that is to the point of action or else dire circumstances will arise. I have been diagnosed with an unknown history of Hemochromatosis, which is a fancy medical term for iron poisoning of the liver. In essence, I produce too much iron and cannot process it normally, which has damaged my liver beyond repair. It is to the point where I need a liver transplant, soon, or my condition is terminal. I also quit drinking over a year ago to help stall any more progression of liver disease. It has taken me some time to get up the courage to write to you and the many people that have touched my life over the years. It has both humbled and terrified me at the same time. My physician has suggested I reach out to all my friends, colleagues and past business associates to spread the news and take my efforts to the next level. This has been difficult to do. I am requesting you share this with as many people you know, both in your personal network, and your social network. Here are some of the high-level mechanics of my request. I am currently on the National Transplant List for a liver. Unfortunately, it can take up to 10 years to get one and quite frankly, I don’t have that much time. Many hospitals do liver transplants nationwide but only the top few do live donor transplants. Earlier this year we moved to Charleston, SC and two of the top hospitals are in the Southeast, Vanderbilt in Nashville and MUSC in South Carolina. The donor needs to be under the age of 55 and have blood type O. The donor cannot have been hospitalized within the past 5 years except for childbirth. The doctors only take about one third of the donor’s liver, which will grow back completely in three to four weeks. There’s two to three days in the hospital, with total a recovery time of six weeks. There will be a permanent scar across the abdomen after surgery. Finally, all expenses for the logistical costs for the donor and their family (airfares, hotel, meals, ground transportation, etc.) will be covered. There will be no out of pocket expenses to the donor and I am open to covering wages and health insurance costs during time away from work. I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to read this and am eternally grateful for whatever support you can provide. I will be keeping a blog with updates on my progress once a suitable donor has come forward and will share that with you in the future. Please feel free to reach out as it would be great to catch up and hear how you are doing. If you’re ever in Charleston, please look me up. Warm Regards, Stephen P. Reilly 503-720-0051 1256 Supply St. Charleston, S.C.
I received a liver transplant 02/12/2016 At Emory and I am forever grateful to my donor angel.
The MELD score needs adjusting! It is not a perfect system but it determines where you are on the liver transplant list. For those with low MELDS due to PSC and PBC but in desperate need of a liver are having to wait and wait until something potentially life threatening happens. Please sign and comment on my petition requesting exception points for PSC and PBC. We now have more than 5300 signatures which got the attention of the CEO of UNOS. The new Acuity Circle rules for Liver Allocation is making the "SCORE MATTER MORE" which is hurting many people with progressive diseases who suffer for years with Low MELDS. Thank you for reading, digesting, signing and sharing!
June 8 (China Time) .... My kidney transplant was 25 years ago today at Egleston Children's Hospital. To my mom/donor 💚, dad, brother, family, friends, and anyone who has worked with CHOA, Twin Lakes, or is associated with a health care system in any capacity what-so-ever, thank you for everything you do. You are all super heroes 🤩🥳
Well, I'm one step closer to having this stuff set up. It wasn't as easy as I hoped for. LOL
Forever thankful...
