Richard McIntyre is 20 years old and lives with the mum. He was diagnosed with auto-immune hepatitis when he was 14 and has been in and out of hospital ever since. Richard needs a liver transplant. Today he has finally been prioritised and should therefore be called for the transplant in the very near future. His mum has been by his side for the last 6 years watching his health deteriorateand he has now become so ill he can no longer leave the house. He has developed numerous complications along the way including type one diabetes. Richard has missed out on all of his school years, friendships and normal social life that most teenage boys will have. He has never touched alcohol and has followed all instructions without complaint given by doctors. Now that he is prioritised for the liver transplant he will be called to Kings college hospital in London soon. This is the news they have been waiting for for 6 years. The expenses for his mum will be huge and are not funded in any way. They are such lovely people and so I have decided to try to raise some money to help them along the way. Richard has dreamed of having a normal life for so long and now that it is finally in sight I ask anyone who can to help make his journey a bit easier! Even the smallest donation will help so much. Thankyou!
