Nevada E. coli O157:H7 victim may require a liver transplant

Linda Rivera, an E. coli O157:H7 victim, was told today to consider a liver transplant and to ask if her three boys would be the donors.  Linda, who Senator Reid profiled several times in the fight for the food safety bill, has remained hospitalized since May of 2009.  Medical bills to date are over $5,000,000. Here is a story done by CNN on the Rivera family several months ago:

    My heart goes out to Linda, her husband, her kids, and anyone else that has to go through this ongoing nightmare with her every step of the way. Your fight is inspirational! Keep up your spirits and walk out of the hospital very soon.

    I can’t even fathom $5 mill in medical bills and the suffering Linda and her family is dealing with right now. I hope her sons are a match and the transplant gets her back on the road to recovery. Keep fighting Linda!
