Kidney For Travis

$19,300 of $55,000 goal

Raised by 153 people in 4 months
Our prayers have been answered: Travis has found a living donor and a kidney transplant has been scheduled for November 7. We now we need financial help. 
With the  kidney transplant date only a short five weeks away, we need your help in raising funds to cover the costs of the the medical co-pays for Travis' recent emergency hospitalization, the upcoming transplant, and for the loss of income during the recovery of both donor and recipient.

We are grateful for your support and consideration in helping to bring this remarkable story to a happy ending.

More on Travis and his donor
Travis’ living donor is truly an exception, not the norm. After looking for a matching donor for close to a year, Travis’ ex-wife LeeAnne decided to step forward and donate her kidney. Unfortunately this comes at a high cost. While the insurance covers much of the significant cost of the transplant operation for Travis and his donor LeeAnne, both still face all the expenses of co-pays, costly prescriptions medicine not covered, and loss of income – all in all an estimated $ 50,000 for both kidney donor and recipient. We need your help. Your support can help ease Travis’ and his family’s financial strain.

 Travis is a retired publisher and now a widely sought after doghost. He won’t be able to board dogs during his recovery due to his lowered immune system. He is also a devoted father to his son Lucas a freshman at Diablo Valley College. Travis’ donor LeeAnne is mother to 2 young boys and currently the sole breadwinner of her new family.

Any amount you can donate is gratefully appreciated. We’ll be happy to share updates on Travis and his donors’ recovery over the next few months.

Thank you to all who donated over the last 4 weeks. After the initial quick recovery I had a few setbacks, including a hospitalization over New Year’s. Things remain a bit challenging and your ongoing support means a lot to me.

It’s simply amazing: My transplant was only 3 weeks ago and I already (mostly) feel like nothing ever happened. Incision is almost healed and my energy level is way up (almost to the point of feeling stir crazy). My donor celebrates her 50th birthday today and all is good in our worlds.
A BIG thank you again to all who supported us during this journey. Wishing you the happiest of holidays.

I continue to be amazed at the speed of my recovery: this morning, nine days after the transplant, I was already able to drive myself to the Albany spit for a walk and iconic view toward Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco.

The new kidney is working overtime and the pace of my recovery is truly astonishing. Come Thanksgiving there will be no shortage of things to be grateful for.
