it seems they dont want to waste a good transplant on a guy who wont take his meds 


We are continuing to work with this family and looking at all options regarding this patient’s health care. We follow very specific criteria in determining eligibility for a transplant of any kind.”

Family members told Channel 2 that doctors are afraid that Anthony, who has been diagnosed with an enlarged heart, wouldn’t follow the strict regimen of medications and follow-up treatments necessary for a transplant to be successful.

“They just don’t want to give him a chance,” Anthony’s mother, Melencia Hamilton, told Channel 2.

it might be easier for to the family to believe that its because of his low grades and trouble with the law but the non compliance might be more related to the kid not caring whether or not he lived or died.

if he doesn't think anybody give a about whether he lives or dies why would he be compliant? What info do they have that he is not compliant? Was he not taking a medication that made him sick? If they can't state specific details then IDK what to think.

sounds messed up to me


Well i know for a fact that it is a consideration.. we had a guy in court  that was an alcoholic and he needed a new liver got a liver transplant.. and was still drinking.. he got his liver from family because he wouldn't be considered because of what he continues to do... now he's even causing damage to the new liver, and now even family wouldn't fool with him no more.. and he was white and we committed him because he wouldn't stop drinking. .

Life saving yes but not a heart transplant.
Since he is underage I would give him more leeway. It is hard enough to get them to do simple stuff like pick up their socks. It must suck for him to be so ill and not be able to do all that his peers are able to do.
