On the 25th October 2021, my Dad received a liver transplant after being diagnosed with ESLD. Over the past few years, there has been many setbacks and it’s been very hard but after being assessed in September 2021, and dad finally being deemed eligible, we waited for ‘the call’ everyday in hope a match would be found on time.

The RVH LSG were fantastic to both my parents in assisting them to & from London for assessments & getting ‘the call’ twice in one week (which was a shock)! My parents stayed nearly 2 weeks away from home for the first time in their life and this alone was difficult. We will be forever grateful for the chance we got and the truly amazing support received throughout the journey and still currently post op. Being able to rebuild our family life again has been life changing for us.

Helping fundraise for the RVH Liver Support Group was a honour.

This group gave so much support and guidance for my family and father through hard times.

On May 1st myself and my twin sister Shannon Hogg took part in the BCM on behalf of RVH Liver Support Group raising just under £1000.

I appreciate everything this group offers to people going through the same difficulties as we did as a family. RVH thank you for giving us our father back and thank you for everything you have done for us.

Yours the Hogg twins Riona & Shannon Hogg
