Transplant type: Kidney
What if you were living on borrowed time?
Arric Robins is awaiting a new lease on life. In February 2021, he was diagnosed with chronic kidney failure. His condition progressed into end-stage renal disease (ESRD), and now doctors say a kidney transplant is necessary. While awaiting his transplant, Arric endures daily 8.5 hour dialysis treatments, which leave him exhausted and take a toll on his quality of life.
During such a challenging time, Arric is thankful to be surrounded by a strong support system. His beautiful fiancé, Natasha, their children, family; and friends have been by his side every step of the way providing much needed love and encouragement. While it has been very hard for Arric and Natasha, these circumstances have also brought them closer together, strengthened their trust in each other, and given them perspective on what matters most in life. Arric looks forward to the kidney transplant that will allow him to live his life fully again. More than anything, he would like to be free from dialysis, be able to cook for his family again, and travel without limitations, but right now, he needs your help.
Unfortunately, Arric’s hope for a new life comes at a very high price.
The average kidney transplant costs approximately $442,000. And that is only the beginning. Even with health insurance, which will cover the cost of the transplant, he faces significant expenses related to the surgery. For the rest of his life, he will need follow-up care and daily anti-rejection medications. Post-transplant medications are very expensive, and they are as critical to his survival as the transplant itself.
What if your life depended on the compassion and generosity of others?
The National Foundation for Transplants is working with volunteers and supporters to help relieve the growing burden of expenses for Arric. The National Foundation for Transplants has been assisting transplant patients with fundraising support for more than 35 years. Your gift—of $25, $50, $100 or more—will enable The National Foundation for Transplants to provide Arric with the financial support he desperately needs.
You can help by making a tax-deductible donation to the National Foundation for Transplants in honor of Arric.
