Dan Reesor needs a liver transplant to save his life. Liver cancer destroyed his liver, but the county's health insurance initially denied coverage for the procedure claiming it was experimental.
Reesor's doctors at UCLA disagreed and supplied information to the plan adminsitrator to allow him to overturn the decision.
Reesor's wife, Jo Mongan talked about the good news with KTVZ.
"This transplant is his cure for cancer. I don't think I can come up with the words how happy I am. They made the right decision."
Until health insurance approved the transplant, Reesor couldn't even be put on the liver transplant waiting list.
For the last couple months, friends and family advocatedfor Reesor to county commissioners and other leaders to reverse their decision to deny the transplant.
