I'm encouraging all my family and friends to help out my brother in this time of need. Please show your support.

My name is Danny. I am trying to raise money to help out my brother Frank. Around his sixteenth birthday, my brother Frank was diagnosed with type I diabetes. During these years he went through some very difficult times. His low blood sugar causes him blackouts. One of these blackouts caused Frank his driver license when driving a work vehicle with special needs students. Diabetes and high blood pressure finally took its toll, at 35 years of age Frank lost his kidneys to renal failure. For five years he endured dialysis, lost his job, and most of all his quality of life diminished. When friends and relatives rallied to raise funds and his wife Irene was a match, Frank got a kidney transplant. After a year of rehab he was able to go back to work with special needs students. Frank got a call from the Loma Linda Hospital Transplant Center in California to receive a pancreas transplant. He was delighted at the news. On June 5, 2012 he received his new pancreas. Unfortunately about one week later the pancreas had to be removed due to an infection that set in. Frank was crushed and very concerned about any damage to his new kidney. He spent 23 days in the hospital recovering. Now he is home with an open wound in his abdomen trying to prevent an infection. Meanwhile bills have been mounting and his wife and son are struggling to make ends meet. Frank and his family once again need your help. Their home has previously been in foreclosure. If you can kindly help him and his family to meet their financial obligations any donations will be greatly appreciated. Please pass this link to anyone that you know. It will really help Frank. Thank you so much.
