Second Chance to Live

My husband "Dalton" of 30 years, father of three children; Dalton Jr. (26), Walter (24) and Desiree (22), two granddaughters Ayla' (2) and Kailee (1) was diagnosed in 2008' of ESRD (Kidney Failure) some may know it as the end of life disease. Just recently in early part of June 2018' a young man came forward and told my husband that he want to donate one of his kidneys. Since 2008, it has been hard for my husband due to recovering from a congestive heart failure and preparing to go through numerous surgeries of placements for his fistulas. Throughout the beginning up to now, the head of our family disability has changed our lives.

Dalton had high blood pressure that was untreated in which cause his congestive heart failure and lead to a kidney failure.  Dalton had to be put on dialysis since they found out that his Kidney was in the final stage.  Dalton continues to be on dialysis, the last eight years has been very hard for him.  

In 2011 his health arrived to the point where Dalton could not manage dialysis and working a full time job causing him to come out on sick leave and wasn't able to return.  That only left my income coming into our household, it's just not enough for me to manage paying bills, paying for medicine to keep my husband alive among catching up on other medical expenses.  

The young man was approved as an identical match for Dalton, the transplant surgery is scheduled for September 7, 2018. My husband need assistance with the anti-rejection medication known as immunosuppressives and we was informed of the $2000.00 a month total, we have spoken with our insurance company that only pays up to 80% of this medication for the first three years. We can use a little extra help until Dalton can heal and return back to the working industry. 

Dalton is in his late 40's.  If you can help in anyway to give some assurance that will be greatly appreciated!
