Dan Reesor has liver cancer and has been told by doctors he needs a liver transplant or he will die.
The county is self insured and the claims administrator has denied his claim.
Patrick Flaherty and John Hummel are appealing to the county commissioners to overturn that decision and save Dan's life.
John Hummel hopes the commissioners will step in.
"The problem Dan has is he's not eligible to be put on the waiting list until payment has been approved from insurance. So he's not even on the waiting list. So once it's approved, then he's on the waiting list and you have to wait until a liver becomes available."
Dan Reeser has served as a Deputy D.A. for Deschutes County for seven years and is the sole support for his wife and their four year old twins.
