Jim's campaign for a break

$520 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 15 people in 46 months
My names is Jim Ryan. I have hade type 1 diabetes for 22 years.  Four years ago I was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease and had to start dialysis two years ago.  By orders from my doctor, I haven't been able to work since 2010.  I am able to get by for my day to day activities but being on a disability income doesn't leave me with any opportunity for savings. I have been wanting to take a vacation to see some of my family before it becomes entirely impossible. 

I I am currently trying to be accepted at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, Ny into their transplant program for a kidney. Unfortunately it doesn't look good for my acceptance.  

I I am asking for the help of strangers because I have heard such positive things about people receiving help here.

This will be my last share of this on my facebook wall. Days 1&2 were beyond expectation! Since then... Not so much. I do really appreciate your contributions (sharing the post, donating) I just feel that this may have come across as something different from my intentions. I love you all.

Wishing everyone has Happy Holidys! Thank you for all your support and encouragement! My Christmas Day will be spent with my mother and father for breakfast and then heading over to my sister Jenny's house for presents with the twins and lunch. I'm looking forward to seeing those munchkins tear into their presents.

Here's another dialysis day update. Today is December 23. I'm sitting here fairly comfortably today. I've heard rumors of getting a visitor and I couldn't be happier!
