Rick has liver cancer, but according to UNOS Rules, Rick cannot get a transplant until his Liver Cancer gets much worse. His cancer lesions must first reach 2 cms in size!

Then and only then can he apply for "exception points".

 

When Rick qualifies, he still has to wait 6 more months under UNOS rules. 

 

Let's let UNOS know that these rules need to be re-examined and changed!
