30 Days to Live

Created by Elmer Wade

30 Days to Live

30 days to live. I grew up in a family of alcoholics -- my mother and father were alcoholics. On March 22, 1996, my doctor gave me 30 days to live. They came back two weeks and said, "You will live, but you'll need a liver transplant." They came back to see me two weeks and said, "You lost a 1 1/3 of your liver. You can live a normal life. You have to change your diet. If you drink again YOU ARE GOING TO DIE."  March 22, 1996 was my last drink. God is good all the time. Thanks for letting me share.


This Story of Hope was created in celebration of recovery and to let families know that there are pathways to hope and healing. The Partnership for Drug-Free Kids is the only nonprofit organization dedicated to helping families who are struggling with their son or daughter's substance use. Please consider sharing this page so that families know where to turn to for help, and that there is always hope.
