The fact is, we don't have the financial resources to make the move. We are contacting the State of Utah about affordable housing subsidies and assistance with our financial responsibilities.
We have good health insurance, thankfully, but it doesnt pay for everything.
So here's the plan - we've started a page on a website that raises funds for medical and related expenses. This site allows those interested to make anonymous donations as well as leave messages and words of encouragement.
The website is: www.giveforward.com
Go to the site. On the opening page there is a search box in the top right corner. In this box, enter: "Ula's Liver Transplant Fund". This will take you to our page. Click or tap on the photo to go to the full fund description. From this point you can make a donation, leave a "Hug" (a short message) or view the messages others have left.
If you check this out and can't donate, that's okay. We appreciate the fact that you took the time to check it out. Please remember this site and tell your friends, church groups and families. Perhaps they'll feel moved to donate. In any case, your prayers are always appreciated!
6/21/14 - Update:
Ula is scheduled to be released from the physical therapy/rehab hospital on Monday, 6/23/14. We will be staying at a cousin's house in the area while we search for a permanent place for us to live while waiting for the liver transplant.
I would like it if readers of this blog would use the following line as their signature line in all of your emails:

This is a direct link to her fundraising page at giveforward.com. If those who do this are asked about it, it would be a great opportunity to explain what it is all about. Someone may feel moved to make a contribution to help save a life. Not just any life - my wife's life.
She is very dear to me. Before this happened to us, I wouldn't have ever dreamt of going to the public asking for money. Now, I've become shameless. I will do anything to save her life.
Please help me do this.
