Matthew F Leonard


"I'm looking for a special soul" '

Hello, my name is Matthew Leonard. My passions include my grandchildren, 4 with one on the way. My three son's and two daughter in laws. My three sisters and one brother as well as my Mom, 88 years young. We are lucky to have a family that cares for each other.
Besides family I am passionate about how people are treated, everyone has something to offer. What bothers me the most is other people who try to bring others down.
I love sports. Mostly Rugby, Football, F1 and Soccer. Thank goodness I have the sports package with my cable.
I was diagnosed with liver failure approximately 3yrs and 8 months ago. Now I live to see my grandaughter to get married. As long as live till she does.

Liver failure has impacted several areas of my physical being. I had blood transfusions for three years and the doctors finally found the source, which has been fixed. My balance has been off since we found out. My aluminum levels have gone up every now and then which causes lack of balance and mind control until I get to the hospital for treatment. I have to watch visiting anyone with a cold, as it will effect me much worse. I have been through a couple of depressions but have gotten away from that.
A transplant would mean saving my life. As of now I'm not sure how long I can survive without the help of someone out there. Can't say much more than that.

I need help from a special soul, who will provide me with a piece of their liver. Friends who can not help me personally will be able to help spread the word. Telling anyone you know and they telling their friends will hopefully increase the population that contains that special soul who will help me. This creates what is known as living donor evaluation.
