After years of alcohol abuse Mickey Mantle was diagnosed with liver cancer in 1994. In June of 1995 Mickey received a liver transplant. At a press conference Mickey noted that many fans had looked to him as a role model; "This is a role model: Don't be like me". Before he died in August 1995 at the age of 63 of liver cancer He established the Mickey Mantle Foundation to raise awareness for organ donations. He was very proud of this.
