A message from Dave Taylor:
For those of you who don’t know me well, here’s a bit about me. I’m a 30-year-old Connecticut Stratford native, living in Brooklyn NY since 2015. After dipping my toes into various aspects of the music industry, I landed in Music Business Management where I have been working for the past 7+ years.
In such a demanding and competitive industry, I refused to let my health slow me down and admittedly downplayed the extent of my illness to those around me. It’s finally come to the point where I need to take a step back and humbly ask for the help that I need.
While I’ve accomplished things that I couldn’t have dreamed of when younger, at the pivotal age of 30 I know that I have a lot more life to live and a lot more to offer. In order to reclaim a good, healthy and productive life, a liver transplant is my only option.
I am lucky to have support from my parents Debbie and Jim, my brother Jared, and my pup, Luna. However, in order to find a liver I’ll need your help too. Please share this page with friends, family, colleagues, and your local communities.
If living liver donation seems like something you would consider, please view the other pages to learn more – and fill out the form to connect with the Donor Team at New York Presbyterian for further information.
I am struggling with the concept that anyone would be willing to give me the enormous gift of a new lease on life, and can’t appropriately articulate how grateful I would be to anyone who has even expressed interest in learning more. Please know that there is no pressure or commitment throughout the evaluation process. You can back out at any stage in the educational and evaluation stages and it will not be disclosed to me.
Thank you everyone, your support means the world to me.
