    Frank Barba

    Guys,

    Frank recently posted in a thread (it really got lost) that he is battling a liver disease. He is currently in need of a donor, so this is a serious situation for he and his family.

    I have used Frank in the past for transport services, and I know that he has been a part of the Viper community and this forum for quite some time. I don't know Frank any more than through our fairly quick business transaction. However, knowing his situation, I feel extremely compelled to make it a focal point of this forum, and just provide encouragement to stay strong and to fight this with everything that he has. Like many of us, he is a husband, a father, and likely a grandfather. So as you are reading through the threads on the site; whether you know Frank or not, provide some words of encouragement for him to see on this thread to hopefully give him additional strength. Try to remember he and his family in your prayers, and let's help him get through this.

    I'v never met him personally but he's helpful and very active and supportive in the Viper community for decades. Vipers is most certainly his passion. Prayers for Frank and his family.

    Looks like I have lots of test scheduled. Today had 2 cat scans, Monday I had Stress Test to check my heart. Man my legs don't move like the use to.
    Next week I have another MRI to be done then a few appointments with Liver Specialists. This disease takes a lot out of you. Get tired very
    easy, but I will make it. I hope everyone has a great day weather your at NVE4 or hanging with Friends and Family. Be Safe

    Wow, thinking of you Frank and like everyone wishing you a positive outcome and thanks for posting the Penn Medicine Organ transplant information. Please keep us updated and we can all help keep this thread alive, as one never knows where a donor may come from or be found?

    Prayers my friend.
    Retired and time to get back on track ---literally!

    Stay strong. Had a close friend who went through serious liver trouble and it was very hard on him.
    After what seemed like forever, he's now the lucky recipient of a donor and living a very happy/healthy life.

    We figured out why I'm wheezing. I had 2+ Liters of fluid in my lung. Today is the first day I was able
    to sleep in months. It feels good to take a deep breath. I have opened up another avenue, I am now
    registered with the Mayo Clinic.
    Thank you to everyone that has sent well wishes and private emails. It means a lot.
