Bay Area Limousine Rides
A 13-year-old liver transplant recipient celebrated her birthday in a very special way recently by riding in a pink limousine with close friends and family members. Eden Darcy was born with biliary artesia, a condition in which the liver’s bile ducts are blocked, impairing the function of the liver. The young lady and her family have struggled with the disease since her diagnosis five weeks after she was born. She received a new liver in August 2005, but complications made the following weeks, months and years very difficult. Her body rejected the transplanted liver three times, requiring constant monitoring and a regimen of anti-rejection medication. In addition, she has experienced many side effects from the medication.
