"By donating your kidney, you are giving me the gift of life."

Jerald— POtential kidney Transplant Recipient

My name is Jerald (Jerry), and I am asking for your help to save my life.

I have been married for 55 years and have 2 children and 3 wonderful grandsons. When I was healthy, I lived a very active lifestyle, swimming, tennis, golf, traveling and being with my family.

I have very limited activity due to dialysis, am very tired and am unable to live the lifestyle I enjoyed before being diagnosed with end stage kidney failure. 

I would love to get back to the lifestyle I was accustomed to and live a healthy and normal life. It's hard not knowing what will happen in the future without a transplant.

By donating your kidney, you are giving me the gift of life, making it possible for me to return to the lifestyle I enjoyed when I was healthy. You would greatly increase my quality of life.

The best chance I have to get a kidney transplant is to receive a one from a living donor.

Living donor transplants generally have better outcomes and can be arranged at a time convenient for both parties. No waiting and wondering while my body continues to weaken.

I would appreciate you sharing this information with anyone that you know who might be interested or a match. 

Thank you so much for your consideration!
