JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Eric Wilson is trying to get answers for his ailing daughter, Alisa, who needs a liver transplant.
Alisa Wilson, 37, is in St. Vincent's Medical Center where she has been since late September, waiting to be transferred to an Orlando hospital where doctors perform liver transplants.
"She needs a liver transplant bad or she is going down," said Eric Wilson from his modest home on the Northside.
Last week, the family thought their prayers had been answered but that quickly led to frustration.
"The doctors have accepted Alisa from a clinical standpoint," he said. " (But) when they looked into insurance, her Medicaid is exhausted."
The family got the news from a case worker from St. Vincent's in a message left on the Wilsons' answering machine. "They cannot take her for a transplant because there would be no funding source," the case worker added.
