National Public Radio

Vicki Hornbuckle used to play the piano at her church. But that was before her liver started failing.

“I had to give it up because I couldn’t keep up,” says Hornbuckle, 54, of Snellville, Georgia. “I didn’t have the energy to do three services on Sunday. You’re just too tired to deal with anything. And so, it’s not a life that you want to live.” But Hornbuckle hasn’t given up. She’s fighting to stay alive long enough to get a liver transplant.
