The Give and Take of Organ Donation
Monday, December 28, 2015

When you're truly committed to something, be it a person or a cause, it's said that you "give a part of yourself." This adage was doubly true for Tim McDermott and his siblings, Mary and Jeff, who each donated a kidney as Tim's began to fail. On today's HearSay, Tim and his family share their story as we explore the complex physical and emotional processes involved in organ donation. We'll also speak with Virginia physicians and facilitators who specialize in organ and tissue donation and transplantation.

Steven's Story: Alcoholic Liver Disease

Posted by: victorb 12/22/2015 10:15 PM

Steven's Story: Alcoholic Liver Disease
Tuesday, December 22, 2015

Earlier this year Steven was diagnosed with alcoholic liver disease, and consequently, cirrhosis of the liver. Years of alcoholism had done near-irreparable damage to his liver, and though his doctor warned him to never drink again, continued consumption of alcohol pushed him into the final stages of liver disease -- doctors tell him that he now has less than a month to live.  He hopes others can learn valuable lessons from his cautionary tale; Steven joins us live to share his story and his day-to-day fight to prolong his life long enough to make it onto the transplant list.

It Takes a Toll

It Takes a Toll
Monday, December 21, 2015

Earlier this month, Delegate Chris Jones of Suffolk, member of the Hampton Roads Transportation Accountability Commission, said he would sponsor legislation that limits tolling on existing highways and bridge-tunnels.  The announcement comes in the wake of plans from state transportation officials to add tolls and tolling lanes to parts of Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads.  A recent Virginian-Pilot editorial addressed the concerns being voiced by many of the region's residents, and today Pilot Editorial Editor, Don Luzzato, joins us to go in depth on the issue, along with Philip Shucet, former Commissioner of the Virginia Department of Transportation, and Aubrey Lane, Virginia's Secretary of Transportation.
