From childhood I suffered many inexplicable bouts of illness that left me in serious pain, missing school and temporarily bed-ridden. Doctors were baffled. In my forties it was finally discovered that I had a very rare liver disease. I needed several operations to stay alive at a time when liver transplants were never heard of. A brilliant surgeon kept me alive for twenty more years. Eventually I degenerated to the point where the liver began to fail completely and I had only a few months to live. I was saved by a liver transplant although I had to wait ten long months before the new liver became available.
