Phil “Pappy” Jowers can take a hint.
Sometimes, things do happen for a reason, although it takes a while to figure that out.
Diagnosed with non-alcohol septic hepatitis in 2004, Jowers learned in 2007 that the disease had scarred his liver to the point that without a new one, he had a year to live, at the most. His time was limited.
Jowers’ chances of a liver transplant were limited so he kept his condition a secret from everyone, including his family.
