Hello my name is David Grimes, better known around here as Coach Dave. I have been coaching Venice Fastpitch since 2008, and currently serve as President of Miss Venice Fastpitch. I would love nothing more than to keep coaching for many years to come. I have been battling Type 1 Diabetes since 2000, and Stage 4 Renal Failure for the past 2 years. My kidney's are no longer functioning so I am now on dialysis. I have not been able to work for the past 2 years. I have been working with Shands Hopspital at The University of Florida, and have been placed on a national waiting list for kidney and pancreas transplant. My wife and two daughters are my entire world. My daughters happen to play softball as well, & I hope to get the transplant to be able to continue to coach my girls and the future girls of Venice Fastpitch. I would like to ask the help of the commuity for any donation, to help cover my medical expenses, my transplant, and take some of the burden off of my family.
Thank you and God Bless,
