Help Gregg after kidney transplant

I would like to tell you about my brother's Journey with kidney disease. Even though it started in the late nineties it wasn't clear to me until June 2nd 2000 the day my brother's kidneys were embolized and the morning our father passed away unexpectedly. Gregg wasn't able to attend the funeral. Gregg began his journey of weekly dialysis, not once do I remember him complaining about the process. He takes everything in stride, while still working and providing for his wife and young son. In  2004 our prayers were answered and Gregg received a kidney and was on the road to recovery. Little did I know that everyday is an uphill battle to keep one's body from rejecting the new organ. 6 years later his insurance stoped Paying for the greatly needed rejection medication and by the time it was resolved the kidney had died and had to be removed. While on this tedious Journey of tiredness, weakness, strange things happening to the body, my brother still stayed up beat. Even missing the opportunity two years ago to receive a kidney but not wanting to miss his son's High School graduation. Gregg once again put himself on the back burner. I have only scratched the surface of this amazing man  I call my brother who was once a star athlete who has a heart of gold and a passion for life. Gregg came out of surgery at 4:45 this morning Independence Day, and we are overjoyed and also thankful for this blessing that he is receiving, and praying for the family whose loved one gave the gift of Life by being an organ donor, we thank you. My friends and family this is where we need your help since Gregg was laid off  December 2015. He is only covered by Medicare which will not cover the full cost of surgery and medication. I have set up a GoFundMe page for those who can help with these expenses we are eternally grateful for your donations and prayers.
Sincerely with all my heart,
Shawn Belton Miller and family.
