ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The family of a man who grew up in Albany is asking for donations as he waits for a liver transplant.

Terry Kimbrell moved to Fort Walton, Florida in 2005.  In 1997 he was diagnosed with a life-threatening liver disease and his health started deteriorating in 2011.

He's currently at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida waiting on a liver transplant, which doctors say is essential to save his life.

"They will have tremendous expenses, even though they have insurance to help with the liver transplant. And these donations are tax deductible," said Carolyn Ramsey, his cousin.

You can send donations through the National Foundation for Transplants.  A link to that website is below.
