Important News From Gordon Kirkland

Dear friends and fans:

On April 9, 2012 I was diagnosed with end-stage liver failure due to non-alcoholic cirrhosis. My liver was no longer removing toxins from my bloodstream causing severe encepholopathy resulting in an inability to concentrate or focus. Writing became a near impossible task. The only thing that could save my life was a liver transplant, but because of my rrare blood type and large stature, they gave me very little hope of getting one.

By September of 2013 I was in palliative care preparing for death. My wife and I spent the weekend of September 14, 2013 planning my funeral during those periods of time that I was conscious.

On September 18, 2013 I got a call from the Transplant Unit at Vancouver General Hospital that a viable liver was available for transplant. The surgery was carried out on the morning of September 19th. My recovery from near death has been nothing short of miraculous.

I am once again able to write, and have started working on two projects - the long awaited sequel to Crossbow, and the story of the last two years of my life, which will be my first serious nonfiction (but hey, it's me writing it so you know there will be humor thrown in for good measure.)

I'd like to thank all of you who wrote to me during this period. It was great encouragement to hear from you and to know that you all were in my corner for this fight. I'd like to encourage you to contact your local transplant authority and sign a donor card. You won't need your organs after you are gone, why not pass them on to someone in a similar situation to what I experienced. I owe my donor my life.

All the best

Gordon Kirkland
