“I hope to have more energy to go back to work and travel with my family, maybe on a cruise.”
In Need of a Kidney Donor
I have three sons and three grandchildren. I love to travel. Before I got sick, I had a car hauling business.
I am in stage 4 of renal failure. I have been doing dialysis three times a week for the last few years. My life mainly consists of dialysis, sleeping, and waiting to go back to work.
I am looking for a living donor. I am asking this of both friends and strangers, because I have no immediate family that is able to donate. Living donor transplants generally have better outcomes and can be arranged at a time convenient for both parties. I am compatible with any Type O blood type. Even if you do not have the same blood type, you can donate as part of a paired exchange program.
The most difficult part of waiting for a transplant is not knowing what the future holds. I hope to continue a lifetime of traveling and spending time with my loved ones. The first step is to contact my transplant center using the information in the box above. The entire process is strictly confidential and medical costs are covered by my insurance.
Please review existing Living Donor Benefits/Rights to determine which apply to you. In addition, the American Transplant Foundation has financial assistance available to cover any lost wages while you donate for those who are eligible after donation.
Thank you for considering saving my life.
With deep gratitude, Shaun
