Transplant type: Kidney
Dear Friends and family,
As some of you know, I am in end-stage renal failure, a disease I have been fighting for quite a while. My condition has progressed causing me to require dialysis three days a week for almost four hours each day. All things considered, I am doing fairly well, but the physical toll of treatment has left me unable to work and do the simple things I love such as fishing, traveling, and spending time on projects around the house. Now, my doctors have told me that a kidney transplant is necessary for me to have the best option for a long, healthy life.
Unfortunately, even with insurance, transplantation is extremely expensive.
There are many out-of-pocket costs that include co-pays and deductibles, doctor visits, after care, and antirejection medications that I will have to take for the rest of my life. I still have hope and faith that I will be successful with this transplant. However, I cannot meet this challenge alone. I am asking for your help to offset my uninsured costs.
This fundraising page has been set up by my daughter Brittney (who I am so grateful for and wish to live long to see her accomplishments). All donations will go directly to assist with my kidney transplant costs at a medical facility, in which my name is on a list to receive a kidney. But, before I can accept a kidney offer, I am required to obtain the financial support to cover my out-of-pocket costs. Once I have reached my goal, I will be able to proceed to the next step and hopefully begin a new journey and a new life with a new organ. It would mean the world to me to meet this goal so that I can live without illness and be here for my loved ones.
I thank each and everyone of you in advance for any contribution you make. Every gift is a tremendous impact to my receiving a new life. Your support will not be forgotten and will forever be appreciated.
What if your life depended on the compassion and generosity of others, would you hope they heed the call?
The National Foundation for Transplants is working with volunteers and supporters to help relieve the growing burden of expenses for Baron.
