While their joy remained, they received a blow the following day, when they received the very news they'd been dreading for some time. Danny's kidneys were on their last little kidney legs, and he would soon require daily dialysis to preserve his life. Danny began dialysis in January 2012, and has maintained the rigorous regimen every single day since. It's been an amazing life of love, happiness and shenanigans, though challenges have loomed around every corner.
Don't fear, friends - this love story has a happy ending! Danny will soon receive a brand-shiny-new kidney from his amazing cousin Anthony!!! The surgery is tentatively scheduled for January 8. This campaign will help us cover travel expenses for a week or so to San Antonio for the surgery, and help offset some of the costs associated with Danny missing work for an extended period of time for recovery.
Thank you in advance for any support, well-wishes, prayers, and good thoughts you want to provide!! Feel free to ask any questions, you can ask here or on Facebook.
Also, please visit Anthony Lopez's Kidney Hero Go Fund Me page at https://www.gofundme.com/Anthonykidneyhero and consider supporting his campaign. We are amazingly grateful to him, his wife, teenagers and two-year-old daughter for this generous gift. Anthony has a very physically-demanding job, and due to heavy lifting restrictions will miss several weeks of work due to donation and recovery.
