Amber is 28 years old with two children. She has a 5 year old son and an 11 year old step-son. She has been in the hospital for the last 3 weeks with liver failure. We were hoping that her liver would repair itself or that she would be able to receive a liver transplant, but neither are possible. Amber has end stage liver cirrhosis which means that her liver is no longer functioning. Her liver failure is causing Ambers other organs to fail also. Her kidneys are only at 10% capacity and declining. The fluid buildup in her stomach has collapsed part of her lungs. Amber’s lungs also have infiltrates which is inflammation and fluid in them. This means that she will have to continue to be on oxygen at all times. Due to her other organs failing, Amber is not a candidate for a liver transplant which is the only thing that would have been able save her life. It is with great regret and sorrow that I must inform you that Amber does not have much time left. Nobody knows for sure how long, it could be days, weeks, or a month, maybe a little more if we are really lucky. All we know for certain is that her organs will continue to fail one by one until we lose her. This is a heartbreaking ordeal for all of us. She is going home for hospice care as this is her wish. Amber wants to spend her remaining time with her family and friends in her home. We appreciate all the love and support!
Many people have expressed that they would like to send cards, flowers, or do something to help, so we have created a website at We request that instead of sending cards or flowers that everyone please donate the money that would have been used for these items into a fund to help Amber with the things that she needs at this time. Amber does not have insurance, and her husband has not worked since this whole ordeal began because he will not leave her hospital bedside. This has left their family in a financial bind. We appreciate all the caring and concern!
