Our Walk Champion:
In 1985, Sandy Dickson visited Doctor Alan Epstein with stomach problems, a doctor's visit that would change her life. Later that year at a follow-up appointment with Dr. Epstein test results showed the beginning stages of cirrhosis. Sandy lived a healthy lifestyle and was sure her choices would continue to keep her healthy. In 2010, Sandy returned to Dr. Epstein as her health had become significantly worse. Medicine was prescribed but was not enough to fix the scarring of her liver that had remained untreated. After three years Sandy's condition only worsened and had progressed to the point where a transplant was her only option. On December 19, 2013 she was rushed to the hospital and surrounded by her family, the hospital priest administered last rites as her liver was shutting down. In the middle of the night a nurse delivered life changing news: a liver was found and was a perfect match. Papers were quickly signed and Sandy was rushed into surgery. She awoke three days later on Christmas. Sandy's family is so thankful for their Christmas miracle! Today Sandy is healthy, happy, and above all, thankful. She is grateful for Dr. Epstein who stood by her side from the beginning, for her family for supporting her, and to her donor, although sad that a life was lost to save another, Sandy would not be here with us today without that generosity. Sandy is a survivor and our champion!
