Local transplant recipient pushes for organ donation
A little more than a year ago Craig Edwards was within weeks of dying. He had been diagnosed with liver cirrhosis, and was severely in need of a transplant. "Last February I was given two to three weeks to live if I didn't find a donor," Edwards said. With time running out, the father of three turned to social media to help look for a donor. "The only way that I was going to live was to receive a directed donor transplant, which is very very rare, but it's the only hope that I had at that point," Edwards said.
