Father makes huge sacrifice to save his son’s life

Screen Shot 2014-04-25 at 4.00.48 PMA Milwaukee dad says he was going down the wrong path in life, but having a son turned his life around.  Shortly after his son’s birth, he was able to return the favor.

When Eulos Rounds found out that his son only had days to live without a liver transplant, he didn’t waste any time and volunteered to donate.

“I didn’t care too much about the risks, ’cause he was at risk anyway.  I felt like, if he go, I go,” Rounds told WITI.

Thirty percent of Eulos’ liver was transplanted into his son, Eulos Jr. It took Eulos Sr. 100 days for his liver to grow back to its normal size.

Both father and son are recovering and doing well.
