East Liverpool man awaits gift of life

EAST LIVERPOOL — Currently more than 14,000 Americans wait patiently on the liver transplant list, but Gail Zink is not one of them.


The city resident explained, “My tumors are too large, so they won’t put me on a transplant list.”


Too many of these people are having their patience tried, while their physical condition is allowed to progress. However, in Zink’s case, a living donor could provide him the gift of life.


Unlike most transplant patients who receive a new organ from a deceased donor, liver recipients are one of the few that can find theirs from a willing living donor.


Generally in the case of willing living kidney donors, they live without their second kidney. However, in the case of liver transplants, as much as 60 percent of the donor’s liver can be harvested for the recipient, as both the liver in both parties naturally regenerates itself to its normal size within weeks of the procedure.


Almost a year after losing his mother to kidney cancer, Zink learned he also had cancer. “I woke up June 11 (last year) and hadn’t been feeling good, so I called off work. I had worked as a mechanic at a Dodge dealership in Newell,” he continued. “I had been vomiting blood, so I went to Beaver Medical Center, where I learned that I had non-alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver. The doctor told me that 99 percent of the cases turn to liver cancer.”


After some irregularities, doctors did a MRI and a CAT scan, which revealed three tumors.


Zink said they put him on chemo pills, and his tumors continued to grow instead of shrink in size.


Most recently, they dripped the chemo directly on two of the three tumors in an effort to make a concentrated difference.


“I just want it fixed,” Zink explained, as his wife Darlas sat nearby. “Some days I am ready to throw in the towel, but really I am not ready. We have only married four years in October.”


A supportive family keeps them going despite their hurdles. “I don’t accept help easily,” Zink continues. “How do you walk up to someone and ask, ‘Do you have half of a liver you don’t need?'”


So far, he has been lucky that the cancer hasn’t spreading to his lungs, but he continues to get that checked every three months. However, frustration is definitely settling in for Zink.


“When I think I almost can see out of the bucket, then someone pours water and sends me back down. It sometimes gets overwhelming,” he said, adding that he just received $4,400 in medical bills in the mail earlier that day.


While he tries to stay positive, sometimes all he can do is remind himself that he isn’t dead or incapacitated yet.


If that wasn’t enough, Zink and his bride both had COVID in December. “I can see the light at the tunnel, but then I am sometimes afraid it is (an oncoming train),” he explained.


Potential donors can help either through offering part of their liver through UPMC’s transplant services program or by donating to the Zink fund.


To sign up to be a living liver donor for Gail Zink, email livingregdonor@upmc.com. The hospital needs the potential donor to specify Zink as the recipient name, the donor’s name, age, blood type and weight as well as contact information.
