Isaac’s Story--On April 17, 2011, Isaac’s Mom noticed her son’s eyes looking slightly yellow. They immediately knew something was not right so they ended up at Phoenix Children’s Hospital to check him out and soon after they were flown to UAMC.
Isaac’s family was told that he had contracted an unknown virus that attacked his liver causing complete liver failure so he needed a liver transplant. Isaac was showing signs of brain swelling, slurred speech, diminishing coordination and screaming uncontrollably, he was then placed in a medically induced coma. Soon they were notified of a matching donor. With joy and hope in their hearts they also had tremendous sadness for the loss of another family’s precious child.
Isaac’s liver transplant took place on May 8, 2011 (Mother’s Day.) It was the best gift a mother could be given. Fourteen days after his transplant Isaac was released from the hospital and was able to go home with his family.
Isaac is now a healthy eleven year old who enjoys playing football on the Rattlers team, running around and playing outside.
