93Q host Ted Long asks Syracuse community to help with wife’s health crisis – syracuse.com

This screenshot from 93Q radio host Ted Long's Facebook page shows a request for a liver transplant to help his wife, Barbara "Bobbie" Long.
Longtime radio host Ted Long is asking the Central New York community to help out with his wife’s health crisis.
Long, who’s co-hosted “Ted and Amy” with Amy Robbins on 93Q (WNTQ-FM) for more than 30 years in Syracuse, revealed on Tuesday that his wife Barbara “Bobbie” Long needs a liver transplant from a live donor. Bobbie was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis, which can be life-threatening.
“When people say things can turn on a dime, they’re not kidding,” Ted said on the morning show. “From the beginning of this year, my wife was diagnosed with liver disease and is now at a point where the only thing that’s going to save her life is a transplant and unfortunately the way they put people on a transplant list for livers… is through testing and she is not at a point in her testing results where she’s able to get on a donation list, which is unbelievable.”
Ted said his wife Bobbie has been hospitalized since mid-July and that she’s “losing hope,” so they’re making a “big ask” for help.
According to NewsChannel 9, Bobbie retired from her job at the Baldwinsville bus garage earlier this year and her condition is quickly worsening. The couple has been working with the Liver Transplant Team at Strong Memorial hospital in Rochester as they wait for the right match.
According to the Mayo Clinic, liver cirrhosis is a late stage of scarring (fibrosis) of the liver which causes chronic, long-term liver damage. The damage generally can’t be undone, but if diagnosed early and treated, further damage can be limited and, rarely, reversed.
To see if you may be a donor, you must be between the ages of 18-60 years old, healthy with a good liver, and have blood type O (+ or -). A series of tests are also required in the process, which takes about three months from finding a match to get the surgery.
Ted is asking anyone who thinks they can help to send a direct message on his Facebook page (facebook.com/TLong79) or to contact Bobbie’s sisters, Elaine Shaffer and Christine Kelly (Chrissy Marino Kelly).
”It’s a big ask, yeah,” Ted said Tuesday. “Unfortunately that’s that’s where we are right now.”
