Newport News Continues to Raise Funds for Member in Need of Liver Transplant

October 18 • 2016

Jeff Holt – a member of Newport News, VA Local I-45 – was diagnosed as a child with primary sclerosing cholangitis, a liver disease that ultimately results in the need for a transplant at some time. That time is now.

Local I-45 has organized a golf tournament on Sunday, November 6, to raise funds for Holt and his family, and is reaching out to local businesses and the community to continue to lend a hand. The November 6 golf tournament will take place at Bide-A-Wee Golf Course at 1:00 p.m.

Holt has been hospitalized several times and has had multiple surgeries to manage this life-long illness. A husband to his wife, Kay, and a father to Peyton (7) and Jake (3), he has been unable to work for a month and is now in need of a liver transplant before he can return to the job. And when a liver match is found, insurance will only cover a small percentage of the total cost of medical expenses.

For more information on how to participate in the golf tournament or how to help support Brother Holt, contact Paul Elmore at (757) 286-4349 or [email protected].
