John Bresnahan Needs A LIVING Liver DONOR

Jack and I have been best friends for ten years! We met when we were 18 years old at Plymouth State University. I was struggling at PSU when we meet. I was far from home and my family. Jack made Plymouth feel like home. He pushed me to explore NH. We went for drives and hikes. He introduced me to rock climbing and kayaking. His passion for the outdoors and his kindness toward everyone are unmatched.

Over the past 6 years, I have noticed changes in Jack. I have noticed his ability to enjoy the outdoor activities he once loved has changed. He gets tired very easily. He doesn't have the strength he had. He has been forced to give up surfing, climbing, hiking, and many other passions.

A transplant would change Jack's world. He would be able to get back into woods and waves. He would have the energy to live his life.

A transplant would allow Jack and I to move forward in our life together. He can start living life!

Jack is one of the kindest people I know. He deserves to live his life to the fullest. He deserves a new liver. A transplant would forever change things for him. I know that being a donor can be a difficult decision, but I also know that Jack would not waste an opportunity to move forward in his life. Please do
