PBC Patient Awaiting a Live Liver Donor – LiveHer [transcript] [audio]

Guest: Bel Kambach

Presenter: Neal Howard

Guest Bio: Bel Kambach, 50 (St. Cloud, MN/Dominican Republic) – Bel, who has stage 4 PBC and awaits a live liver donor to save her life, works as a college professor of geography during the school year and is a speaker on a luxury cruise line during the summer. She speaks 6 languages and has visited 103 countries. She was initially misdiagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis and tried 27 different medications before finally being diagnosed with PBC at the Mayo Clinic three years later in 2012. A single mom, Bel’s story is a remarkable one, including her multi-year fight for a diagnosis, her eventual liver failure, and her ongoing and dramatic search for a live liver donor.  Incredibly, she’s done all of this while attending to her students, and navigating the ups and downs of being a single parent.  Bel is also an ambassador for the LiveHer National Photography Project.
