I'm fighting stage 5 end of life renal disease and am in the need of a transplant.
April of 2010 I received the amazing gift of life from one of my sisters, she is a selfless person and a true hero, I can never thank her enough. I have been lucky enough to survive almost 11 years however my medical team said sometime back that its time to start looking for another donor, my time is limited.
Life is good and I'm not saying it's not hard sometimes because it is, it can be really hard but I want to stay here longer. Please consider kidney donation to help me live.
I am officially listed on the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) kidney transplant waiting list at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. I'm trying to hang in there and am doing the very best that I can. Problem is that the wait is six years. Its doubtful I will live long enough so I need a living donor as soon as possible.
I am seeking a donor and require a transplant as soon as possible and I'm seeking help financially for financial support of my donor and for some of my needs that include prescription and co-payment assistance and specialized recovery care, Any donation will help, large or small...It all adds up. Any and all funds not used will be donated to other kidney transplant patients.
I am humbled to ask for your help and prayers. I thank everyone in advanced for their kind words and for any contributions that you can make in this time of need. Most importantly please spread the word. I have more living to do!
At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.
Sincerely - Don
Love you Mom!
