A California man is desperate to save his wife’s life by offering his truck, trailer and his own kidney for a healthy liver.
In a viral Facebook post, Verlon Robinson, 55, offered to give his pickup truck to anyone who would donate a piece of their liver to his wife of 25 years, 61-year-old Marie Robinson, who is suffering from liver cirrhosis and has her days numbered if she fails to find a donor soon.
“I do have an 04 Dodge pickup that I would gladly trade anyone plus I could throw in a nice tent trailer… So please if you are O positive or negative blood type and would consider giving her some of your liver we have insurance that would cover all surgeries.”
He also added in the post: “Ps. I have good kidneys and I would throw in one.”
“Everything I’ve worked for all my life is not important to me. This is important to me, right here. I just couldn’t imagine life without her,” says Verlon via Fox26.
Marie said since she found out she has cirrhosis of the liver she has lost 70 lbs. in liquid and she has been on the wait list for three years, but she said she is just one of 18,000.
“There are so many people out there that are sick, and need help, and I am just one of them. I just have a wonderful husband who is willing to give it all,” says Marie.
