To the members of our Catholic community:
Friend and dedicated public servant, Oak Park Chief of Police Anthony (Tony) Ambrose is in urgent need of a live liver donor. He is receiving care at Northwestern Memorial Hospital as he is in liver failure due to Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH). This condition is a very serious and silent disease with few symptoms, and has progressed so quickly in Tony there is irreversible damage. His only hope is receive a liver transplant from a live donor. While his family searches for a donor match, we wanted to bring this situation to the attention of the community in the hope that someone will step forward and offer Tony the gift of life. If a donor is a match, they would donate part of their liver to Tony. The liver heals quickly and regrows to replace the donated piece.
