From left to right Carmen Felix, 12, Carla Felix, 2, Francisco Felix, Jessica Felix, 10, Flor Felix, Francisco's wife, and Jennifer Felix, 3 1/2, surround Francisco at home as they filled out paperwork for the National Transplant Assistance Fund, Tuesday, Nov. 16, 2010, in Laveen, Ariz. The 32-year-old Phoenix resident, was prepped to get a new lifesaving liver at a Phoenix hospital Tuesday, returned home a couple hours later without the surgery. He is one of dozens of Arizona patients who need liver transplants but can't get them because of moneysaving budget cuts to the state's Medicaid system. The new cuts mean patients who get medical coverage from the state's Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System, or AHCCCS, will not get liver transplants if they have Hepatitis C. less
