Many health issues compound woman's 'desperate' need for liver

Heather King, left, seen with her mother, Patty McClaine, is in stage 4 liver failure due to diabetes and also just found out that she is at high risk of colon cancer due to a genetic condition.

Patty McClaine loves her daughter and would do anything for her, including donating a portion of her liver if she could.

However, the East Brady woman can’t because she isn’t a compatible match, which is why McClaine hopes someone will step forward and save her daughter’s life.
