Eric Matthews Kidney Fund

Having healthy organs is something you take for granted until you watch someone you love struggle with having them fail. My husband Eric is currently "living" with End Stage Renal Disease. He does dialysis 7 days a week for 11-12 hours a day. He is still trying to work but is so tired and run down that it's really hard for him to do anything. Having ESRD is a full time job for the patient and the entire family. Eric struggles with not just his kidney's failing but also with all the secondary conditions and diseases that come along with ERSD. His only hope at a better, and hopefully longer, life is a transplant. He was originally denied a kidney transplant because of his heart issues. At this point he needs to be able to qualify for a heart/kidney transplant. However, he needs to have a lot of expensive dental work done before he even has a chance of getting approved. We have run through our health care savings account already and yet our medical expenses and bills just keep increasing. We are asking for help to keep Eric around for as long as possible. Every little bit helps! We couldn't go throught this journey without the love and support of our family and friends.
