At 20 years old, Dalles was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy and was given a heart transplant on May 29th 2002. Since then he has been a hard worker and good provider for his family, and been the kind of father that most men should look up to. A few days ago Dalles started feeling ill and went to the ER. He was taken, by ambulance to salt lake and will be staying down there for the foreseeable future untill a course of action is determined to possibly save his life. He is facing a health problem that is every bit as life threatening as his heart transplant. He has a mass on his kidney and has been diagnosed with kidney cancer in at least one of his kidneys. He also has cancer in his lymph nodes. At this time a plan of action has not been determined, since they have had to take him off of his anti-rejection medications in order to treat his kidneys. So his heart is being closely monitored during his care. It is not known how long he will be there in salt lake, but his family could really use the financial aid to travel back and forth between SLC and IF, hotels and meals, fuel, loss of income and bills. If you can find it in your heart to help someone who has always gone out of his way to help others it would be greatly appreciated by many! Many thanks in advance and please share!
