April is Donate Life Month!! Make sure you have your license reflect your preference for donation, or make your wishes known to your loved ones. You can also donate while you are still alive, by donating a pint of blood or a kidney. You don't have to wait for someone you know to need it, you can donate altruistically, to a stranger in need! Think about it!

Wow! 72% raised! Y'all are phenomenal! But I have two follow ups in San Antonio this year and have to pay those expenses. Oscar is doing very well and is recovering nicely. His family has become puts and we are so enriched spiritually by their presence in our lives. I want to thank everyone who has helped us, you are our heroes. Have a lovely spring wherever you are.

Our dear friend of 40 years is in end stage renal failure due to PKD, or poly cystic kidney disease. He has been waiting for a kidney for over 1 1/2 years. His family did not match, his friends were not compatible. I am compatible as an O negative, universal donor. I have undergone extensive testing to verify my health is good enough to undergo the procedure. I feel as if I have given a gallon of blood, gallon of urine and a lot of free time for X-rays, ekgs, CTs, etc. all this has been paid for by the recipient's insurance. The procedure, however, must take place 500 miles from home. We will have to arrive early for final testing, and classes in nutrition and post op care. The majority of our time will be spent in a hotel room prior to surgery and for 7 days after. We applied for assistance only to be turned down. We need your help to cover expenses in the hotel, the food we need to eat and the transportation costs to get there and back. I will also be out of work for more than a month after for recovery. The lost wages will be covered by donation only. Bills still must be paid, house payments are still due. Please, we need your help to make this happen for our dear friend.
