Kidney disease fund

Hi my name is ian. I am a 41 year old father of 6 and I have end stage renal disease (kidney failure). I have been doing dialysis for the past 8yrs, three times a week with four hour sessions. Some might say this is a bad thing. But to me its a good thing (of sorts), this disease allowed me to find Jesus. He has become a permanent part of my life. I know that without Him I wouldn't be here today.  So I use sickness in a positive way to inspire others, to give uplifting and renewed hope. When people tell me things are bad, i always tell them when you think things are going bad for you there is always someone going though worse than you.  I'm here today seeking help so that i can get a new kidney. While insurance pays for somethings it doesn't cover everything so I really need your help. Thank you for taking the time to read my short story and in doing so may God bless you.
