Tim Damon is having an eventful summer, that has included a life-changing operation and moments of gratitude.Damon, son of Mark and Tina Damon, of Camas, received a liver transplant in June, at Oregon Health & Science University Hospital, in Portland. He has Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis, a rare bile duct disease. It is not curable, but some of the symptoms are treatable.
Diagnosed with PSC six years ago, Damon underwent approximately 20 endoscopic procedures, but he was continuing to turn yellow.
"I've recently returned to normal skin tone, for the first time in about a year and a half," he said.
