Frank Wright's Kidney Fundraiser

Frank Wright,  my husband, is a fabulous man of integrity and strong character!  He came from Cuba as a child,  is  a very  proud American and has a great sense of humor. 

Frank has been a successful Casino Games Dealer, Trainer, Pit Boss and Management  Team member in the Gaming industry for 30 plus years.  His customers  truly love him because he is honest, fair,  affable and funny.    More importantly,  Frankie  takes a sincerely personal interest in people with his warm heart !  He  always seeks to help others, especially those who are hurting.

Frankie  beat  kidney cancer 10 years ago with a partial nephrectomy,  no chemo, and good living!  And he kept working.  But it appears that Gadolinium Dye used in diagnostics, sepsis, and  more recent medical drug delivery mistakes  all contributed to Frank's  kidneys  ultimately failing.

Concurrent with this,  Frank started losing his eyesight when pressure built up in his eyes from a Pseudo Tumor Cerebri  in September 2017.  The intervention of two fantastic Eye Doctors  here in Reno  reversed it and saved his eyesight, thankfully!

A  year ago in October  2017  Frank started life-sustaining dialysis   He's  had three  surgeries for dialysis access  which greatly damaged his left arm and hand!  He is now in PT 3 times weekly for restoration of  function.    Frankie's  pain has been immeasurable for 11 months, and the physical toll has been  astounding!  


Frank is on the UC Davis Kidney Transplant list.  And Drs. say he needs a Kidney Transplant  ASAP  for these issues to reverse and start  life anew.  We are  hoping and Praying for a Living  Kidney Donor for healing.   Frankie has had many life challenges, including losing daughter Annalee at 10 years old;  yet he is meeting this one with his same incredible strength,  solid courage, and unwavering Faith!

The donations  we seek  would be used for "All things Kidney for Frankie"!  The KidneyCare  business has broken us financially.  When  Frank  receives  the Honor of a Living Donor Transplant, we want to help with the  financial issues  posed for the donor, also.  There is  much travel for  donors and recipients, as well as lost work.  

We also need some financial help with Drs' therapies, not  covered by  insurance,  that will sustain and strengthen Frank for Transplant. These  needs are  critical for healing restoration!

We look forward to the possibilities that GoFundMe can offer Frank, the family, and others who are so in need of supportive kindness and selfless deeds.  Thank you for considering donating to Frankie's Kidney Transplant Fund!  We thank you for your thoughts and prayers,  and may God Be With You  ALL ... family, friends, and  others  alike.  Please share and pray with us for a Living Kidney Donor for Frank.  Thank you so much.
He says,  "I am just one kidney away from feeling Great!"
