If you’re a listener of top-40 radio in Central New York, or even the Eastern Finger Lakes region, there’s a good chance you know Ted Long’s voice.
Ted Long, part of the “Ted and Amy in the Morning” duo, have been on 93Q for more than three decades. The typically fun and funny radio host went public with a very personal battle.
His wife Bobbie has liver disease. It’s reached a point now where she need a transplant to survive.
A living-donor liver transplant is a surgery in which a person with a health liver gives part of it up.
The donor’s remaining liver regrows and returns to its normal size, volume, and capacity within a few months. The transplanted portion also grows and restores into a normally functioning liver.
The hospital stay for both the donor and recipient is around a week. The Long’s are asking for the public’s help finding a donor.
To be considered a person must match Bobbie’s blood type “O.” The donor must also be between 18-60 years old, and in good health.
