Timothy Pike needs Kidney transplant

Family and Friends of Timothy Pike are asking for YOUR help in raising funds to assist in the cost associated with
a life saving kidney transplant. Tim has stage five complete kidney failure and Surmounting medical costs.

Tim has always lived a healthy lifestyle, till several bouts of life threatening pneumonia
changed his life forever! Over 2 years he had 20 inpatient stays, totaling a year in a  hospital bed.
But Tim fought the odds, he is home and stable. Thank the Lord. 

This pneumonia caused an extremely rare blood clotting condition to infarct his kidneys, lower right lobe of a lung, dvt,
strokes, ileus, cataracts, adrenal insufficiency, and several long term ICU intubations.
His life depends on a dialysis machine, 3 to 4 times per week sitting for 4 hours cleaning his system out and taking a  day to
recover from side effects. To survive, he needs a living donor O+ kidney transplant! 

When Tim gets the call for a transplant, it will be out of state, out of network and for extended rehabilitation.
Therefore he and his wife Kim will be relocating away from home and family.
This will be VERY costly, but will save his life.

You may know Tim and  wife Kim of twenty years or their two children Clayton and Olivia. Kim and  kids are
always known to have a smile on their faces, despite the years of stress wondering if Dads going to live or not.
You might know Tim from his large family raised in Lake View, NY. One of 7 Pike children, all attended Frontier Central.
Or perhaps from his 30 year career working in country club management WCC, SCC or BLC.
When he had time to spare, he was volunteering for the Lake View Fire Dept. He did this for over 30 years and served many positions. 
Lastly , maybe YOU cared for him during one of his 20 inpatients stays in Roswell, BGH, Gates, Mercy hospital
or Cleveland Clinic? God bless you if you did!  Every time you hear a code blue in a clinic, is it Tim again?
Who wants to draw labs on Mr. Pike with collapsed veins? 
Needless to say Tim has been through the ringer!
If it was not for coming down with pneumonia, and near death several times, Tim would be working right now!
He would give anything to be at work.

Please come together to help this family get over the last hurdle, and get him a O+ kidney transplant
that will once again change his and his family's life forever!

Tim is turning 50 on November 8th--please help him live 50 more years!

Thank you for your support!
