Before Phil Jowers retired from Duracell in 2007, he opened Right Turn Driver Training.
He hoped to retire from his full-time job at the plant, and then teach others the rules of the road during his retirement.
In 2007, his plans changed.
Jowers, 56, discovered that a disease he learned he had in 2004, non-alcoholic septic hepatitis, had progressed. The disease causes the scarring of the liver, known as cirrhosis. Doctors told him that he needed a liver transplant, or else he had six months to a year to live.
