My husband died 7 months ago. He was in the liver transplant program and was dropped.

Asked over 1 year ago - Farmville, VA

Richmond Virginia doctor dropped my husband from the liver transplant system . His number was at the top of the list , but his nodes turned cancerous . I feel the alcohol distributors need to be sued . There were no instructions that he should not drink that he would harm himself - he was in Vietnam and other sites all over the world . No one advised that this harmful this can cause your death . Tobacco had pay back to relatives . I lived on a very limited income . How am I supposed to live without him . I would just like enough money to live on - I do not expect a fortune . I wish I had my husband back . I miss him so terribly . Isn't his life worth something ?

I know they did a much better job at constantly warning of the dangers of their products, which is unlike the tobacco industry.

    Answered . I am very sorry to hear about this. It is protocol to remove a person from the transplant list who has cancer. As my colleague mentioned the suit against alcohol manufacturers has been unsuccessfully tried.
