Alan Meyer’s world came to a heart-wrenching stop in April 2016 when he was diagnosed with Advanced Renal Failure (Kidney Failure). As a loving father and dedicated Lieutenant in the California Department of Corrections, Alan refuses to let this serious prognosis beat him without a fight. Even with the medical burden of 4 hours of dialysis a day, 6 days a week, Alan continues to dedicate all his remaining time and love to his 14-year-old, autistic son Ethan and his beautiful fiancée Michele.
Against all odds, Alan was fortunate enough to be matched with a donor, Sergeant Angel Hernandez. However, months of grueling tests, procedures, and hospital visits have left Alan buried under a mountain of medical expenses. To make matters worse, his failing health has limited Alan’s ability to work, adding to the Meyer family’s growing debt. Time is running out for Alan to get the funds he needs to pay for his kidney transplant!
Friends, family, and coworkers, please take a moment to give a father more time with his family. Alan’s transplant surgery is scheduled to take place at Stanford Hospital in July 2017. Please donate what you can to give Alan a second chance at life. Every penny of your donation will go towards paying for Alan’s transplant surgery and resulting medical expenses.
Aided by unwavering love and support from Michele, Ethan, and all of you, Alan continues his fight against Advanced Renal Failure with relentless courage, motivation, and commitment. From the bottom of their hearts. Alan, Michele, Ethan, and Angel thank you for any contribution you are able to make. Your prayers, blessings, and good vibes are welcomed as Alan continues his fight to spend more time with his loving family.
