The Society’s goal is to provide temporary accommodation for liver transplant patients and their family members who must travel to Vancouver for life-saving liver transplants. Liver transplant patients must stay in Vancouver for up to three months following their transplant for post-transplant care as an out-patient.
The Happy Liver Society opened Stacey House in September 2008 -- a “home away from home” for post-operative liver transplant patients. It is located one block away from Vancouver General Hospital. Stacey House is a one-bedroom apartment that will sleep up to four people. The Happy Liver Society of BC provides for the rent and utilities of this suite.
The Happy Liver Society is raising funds to support Stacey House and to promote awareness of liver disease to the greater public. We promote immunization for Hepatitis A and B, testing of all people for Hepatitis C, and early screening and detection of liver disease in general.
