As some as you may know Stan is in kidney failure and in need of a transplant. He is at Stage 4 kidney failure. He will be starting dialysis in the next few months and we are headed to Salt Lake City to meet with the Kidney transplant team there.
Living in Alaska is wonderful but we do not have a transplant center in this beautiful state. We have chosen Salt Lake City because our daughter and her husband live in Ogden. Stans treatment and recovery will be more comfortable at their home.
Having to travel outside of Alaska for tests and treatments are costly.
At this stage Stan is heading to Salt Lake City in March for our first meet with the surgical team and then we can start with donor testing. These tests are also limited in Alaska and will require trips to Utah for any potential donor.
Stan has the best support team!! His children and grandkids have been very concerned and loving throughout his health issues.
We will put updates here as events start to change.
Thank you to every one that is taking the time to read and help with our journey for better health and living for Stan.
