Linda Riso Needs A LIVING Liver DONOR

My sister Linda is a very smart, driven and accomplished women who deserves another chance at getting her life back. It's been a very long road!!!

I am Linda's sister Jodi. Linda and I are five years apart there are five children in our family, Linda being the middle child me being the youngest. Linda and I really didn't do a lot together when we were younger because of our age difference but as we got older we became very close. We used to love to go shopping just about every Saturday with my mom and had a lot of fun and laughs. The qualities I admire the most about my sister Linda is her ambition no matter what she is doing. She worked her way up from working in a factory at a young age to being Vice President of a Hospital, no matter what you put in front of her she would accomplish it hands down.

Linda's liver failure has affected every aspect of her life. She has a loving husband 5 beautiful dogs and 4 very cute donkeys. Never mind her long list of extended family and friends. Linda still gets up every day to go to work when most people probably would have given up, she no longer can take care of her donkeys and do all the things she used to with her dogs. She basically has no quality of life at this point. It is heartbreaking for everyone!!!

A transplant for Linda would be life changing for her and her family. It would be so nice to see my sister happy and feeling good again it's been a long road with no end in sight so far if she doesn't receive a transplant.

Other people can help Linda by getting the word out, I personally will reach out to friends and have them reach out also. The more people that are aware the better chance she has of finding someone. Its literally a matter of life and death!!!
