Deputy D.A. Pleads with County's Health Insurance to Approve a Life Saving Liver Transplant

Dan Reesor was diagnosed with liver cancer earlier this year and his doctors at UCLA say the only treatment is a liver transplant.


The problem is, the county's health insurance has rejected his plea to approve the transplant.


They claim its experimental and not medically necessary.


Reesor begs to differ.  


"If I don't get a liver transplant, I'll die, plain and simple."


Reesor's freinds and family have appealed to the Deschutes County Commissioners asking them to intervene and approve the life saving transplant, but they claim they can't do that.  All they can do is try to expedite the process.


Without approval, Ressor can't even be placed on the wait list for a new liver.
