I am so sorry you are fighting this fight alone. If you haven't yet, I'd recommend a medical school hospital, especially one known to have a good transplant program (such as, but not limited to, University of Pennsylvania-Pittsburgh Hospital, University of Arizona Hospital). University hospitals are forerunners of innovative care, and have access to funds private hospitals and clinics do not.
I hope that this helps. This is why the Affordable Care Act is so critical to middle America; what kind of a system do we have where rich hollywood stars and politicians and corporate leaders can get a transplant, but a regular American cannot?

First you need to contact the organ donation system in your area. Whoever diagnosed you with end stage cirrhosis should be able to get a referral or give you the info on who to contact unless your particular medical circumstances make you ineligible. First, though, you need to get in touch with UNOS for your state/area.
