Thank you to the family of Vincent Randazzese ’94 for sharing this prayer intention.
“Vinny has wonderful memories of his days at Molloy. Currently, Vinny needs our prayers and assistance with a liver donor. As a young boy, Vinny was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. Since the diagnosis he has needed medication to survive. Throughout, his life he has been taking medication for his pancreas and over time he has developed cirrhosis of the liver. There are new medications now to eradicate the disease in the lungs, but his liver won’t tolerate the medications. These new medicines could give Vinny another 25 years or more of his life. Vinny’s family members and close friends have been tested as potential liver donors. Unfortunately, none were matches. Vinny’s family is seeking help from Molloy Alumni. The gift of organ donation is life saving and one of the greatest gifts we humans can give. The liver regenerates itself within 6-8 months and the donor will go on to have a normal healthy life. NYU hospital has excellent outcomes with liver donations and is one of the top facilities for this transplant.”
“We ask anyone who may be interested in being a living liver donor or receiving more information about this life saving gift to contact Living Liver Donor Transplant Coordinator Patricia Tabamo at NYU Hospital by calling (212) 263-3621 or emailing Patricia.Tabamo@nyulangone.org. If you are unable to help, we ask that you please keep Vinny in your prayers.” – Family of Vincent Randazzese ‘94
