Dauphine, 31, was diagnosed with hepatocellular, (HCC) in July 2012 the most common type of liver cancer. It was detected after she felt a hard bulge, which turned out to be a tumor, right below her rib cage on her right side.
A PET test confirmed that the cancer was in fact limited to her liver. Friends and family started a Facebook page “Help Marcie Find A Liver” to find a living donor.
Dauphine, a patient at Baylor Medical Center in Dallas recently underwent hepatic artery infusion therapy, Chemoembolization, and three days of transplant testing.
On Dec. 4 she received a call saying she has been approved as a transplant recipient and is now waiting for a living donor.
Three St. Martin Parish residents have come forward to help as possible donors.
Dauphine is a graduate of Cecilia High, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and Arizona State University. She is the daughter of Glen and Carol Dauphine.
