Shawn's Kidney Transplant Fund

God is good!! I have a live Kidney Donor!!
My donor's employer does not have sick leave or paid leave that he can take while out for the transplant. It is estimated that he will be out of work for approximately 3 weeks. I have opened this go fund me to try to assist him financially with the bills for him and his family while he is out of work. I would like to have the funds by September 11,2017. Please help me in making sure that this man who is so unselfish has a piece of mind while he is recovering.

MY STORY
I have been in End Stage Kidney Failure since October 2016.  Over time, my kidney disease has gotten worse causing my kidneys not to work well enough to keep me alive.  I am currently undergoing dialysis treatments and on the list for a kidney transplant. 

I am currently receiving regular dialysis treatments, Three times a week for four hours at a time, which makes me extremely exhausted and lowers my quality of life.  The treatments do help my kidneys do their job and keep me alive, but a transplant would offer me more freedom and the ability to live a longer, healthier, more normal life.  A transplant would also give more time to do the fun things I enjoy most, like spending time with my family and friends.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story
