Twenty-seven year old Rachel Gregory is in the fight for her life.  Diagnosed with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) a few years ago, she is currently undergoing evaluation for a liver transplant.  PSC is a rare, incurable disease that is thought to be autoimmune in nature.  It causes the bile ducts both inside and outside the liver to become scarred, narrowed and eventually blocked.  As more and more ducts are blocked, bile becomes trapped and damages the liver, causing cell death and cirrhosis.

Going from full-time employment to disability in a matter of weeks, having to take countless medications on a daily basis, dealing with the fatigue and hopelessness; it can get quite depressing.  But she has found a silver lining and is using this time to help raise awareness about the reality of liver health, organ failure and the overwhelming need for organ donors.

Through the long list of complications, constant pain, staggering medical bills and fear of what the future holds, Rachel always has a smile on her face.
