Alright so the "Spokespeople" bio thing hasn't been updated on the Games website. Who do you think will be coming? I'm hoping for Steve Jobs and a FREE iPad or iPod--HA! :-)

Seriously, who do you think is coming? Larry Hagman and Chris Klug are pretty much a given ( :-) ) but who else do you think will make an appearance? Natalie Cole?

Niece in Need of Housing in Los Angeles

My niece has been approved for a kidney transplant at Cedar's Sinai in LA but hasn't found an affordable place to stay for the three months following the transplant. Does anyone know of a place or have a suggestion on how to find a place. Her social worker did give her a list of hotels/motels but they are out of her price range. She is doing some fund raising to help cover expenses. Any ideas would be appreciated.Thank you.See More

Liver Transplants

This is a group for all people who have had liver transplants. Feel free to say how long you have been a recipient and what medication you are on. Some doctors hope to have their patients off all medications, any thoughts?
