Help Nate with Kidney Transplant Expenses

Donation protected
Hi! My name is Mary Wilson, and my boyfriend, Nate Parenteau, was recently diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy in November 2021. The YouTube video I have attached tells his story up until now.

Nate currently does hemodialysis 5x a week at a dialysis center and is working towards being able to do it at home. Unfortunately, his kidneys are at less than 5%. He needs a kidney to return to any sense of a normal life. The past 8 months have been a long journey of ER visits, lengthy hospital stays, surgeries, IVs, etc.

This has been a long hard road and we still have a journey ahead. So, if you are able and willing, we are asking for donations to help the mountain of medical bills he has faced and will face in the future. Anything helps.

If you would like to apply to be a donor, Nate (and many others), are in desperate need. You can apply here:
Or call: (612) [phone redacted]

We will post updates throughout his journey ahead.
