Stage 4 Liver Disease/Liver Transplant
David Burns recently celebrated his very happy and healthy five-year liver transplant anniversary. David is a miracle, who plans on taking full advantage of his wonderful life.
In 2014, David was struck with Stage 4 liver disease. After several months of intensive care and dozens of procedures to keep him alive, David was given new life with a donated liver on January 26th, 2015. If it wasn’t for the amazing work of miracle doctors, nurses, staff at UCLA hospital, David would certainly not be with us today. If it wasn’t for the incredible prayers of his supportive family and friends the same would be true.
Today, David lives in beautiful Santa Barbara, with a close network of family nearby. He also stays in close contact with his UCLA staff and doctors. He has two wonderful children Andrew and Eloise, who live in Fairfield, Connecticut. He happily travels monthly to visit them.
Currently, David is at full strength, playing tennis and swimming. He’s active in the Santa Barbara community. He works with the board of the Santa Barbara Tennis Patrons, who support and develop tennis for juniors in the community and make it a lifelong sports for all. He also directs junior novice local tournaments and coaches the boys and girls high school tennis at San Marcos High School.
In his first year working on the board of the American Liver Foundation, he raised over $15,000 for the ALF Santa Monica Liver Life Walk. He’s been on the board now for five years and has contributed successfully ever since.
David never takes his life for granted. His five years of health have been a blessing. David will continue to celebrate his life by giving back and enjoying each and every day.
