Jim McCann has been an active member of the Hamlin Park Baseball & Softball community for many years. Jim serves as the HPBA Fall Ball Director, a HPBA Head Coach and HPBA Dad to a 7th & 4th grader. Jim has recently become ill and needs help.

Jim is in need of a liver transplant, from a living donor.

The family is asking if you or anyone you know would please consider becoming a living donor. These are the basic requirements:

- Blood type A or O

- 18 to 55 years old

- Body mass index equal to or less than 30

- In good health with no major medical or psychiatric illnesses

- Able to understand and comply with instructions for surgery and recovery


All expenses (medical, housing, work lost, etc.) will be covered.

Surgery will take place at Northwestern Medical Center in Chicago. For additional information or to attend an education session, please call (312) 695-0340 or visit www.transplant.nmh.org

Friends of the family have also started a GoFundMe page to help collect funds for medical expenses. Here is a link to the GoFundMe page: www.gofundme.com/f/mccann-family-liver-transplant-fundraiser

Please spread the word and many thanks!

If interested please email Kristin Hellquist (kristinhellquist@gmail.com) to be put in touch with the family.
