graft vs host from a liver transplant

Hello, my name is Ralph N Johnson I just join this wonderful group of concern,loving,family and friends. My gift to life was on 7-12-14 liver transplant at Univ of Penn hospital Phila. In August I contacted (GVHD) from the liver transplant.August & September was spent fighting daily for my very life. Currently undetectable, My Dr. told me that I would be lucky to find as many people that it takes to play a hand of bridge that survived this disease. Can anyone point me in the direction to find the other three. Thank you.. See More
