Hi! It's Lourdes! My dear friend DeWayne spent every moment helping me raise money to fight cancer and now we're here to help him.

And because of all his efforts, he spent every moment helping me raise funds to get the help I needed, Thankfully I am here today, healthy and alive!
Now my dear friend  is still fighting kidney failure and needs our help more than ever. His time is starting to run out. But with your help of donating and spreading the word, he can get his transplant. He desperately needs a kidney transplant! He has been a kidney dialysis patient for 6 years and also a passionate advocate to help other patients with chronic disease. Once again, he has been invited back to Capitol Hill to speak to Congress and help introduce new legislation that would save lives and greatly improve the lifespan and quality of life for other dialysis patients. He even made a touching short film, titled The Real Faces Of Dialysis https://youtu.be/8koE4pO47ak to explain their needs to lawmakers:

While he continues to fight, he has had 13 surgeries in the last 2 years and the only thing that will save him now is a new kidney. The average kidney transplant cost over $262,000 and insurance only covers about 85%.  He just returned from successful meetings with lawmakers on Capitol Hill. DeWayne is also featured on the home page of the official website of the American Kidney Fund. His full story is featured here:

  The much needed funding will be used to finance the long, difficult and expensive transplant process that insurance does NOT cover. This is an absolute requirement to even hope to get a new kidney. DeWayne's life depends on this! Please donate today and share this with everyone you know!

Thank you!
