The donations will be used to help pay for lost income and additional medical costs during Kirby's kidney transplant.

Kirby has been on dialysis for 2 years. He had a operation about two months ago to remove both of his non-functioning kidneys and now his nephew has tested as a match to donate a kidney for his uncle. This is wonderful news and we can't wait for Kirby to feel better than he has in years! Kirby had to take over a month off work for the kidneys to be removed, all unpaid. He will need another 8 weeks off work when he receives his new kidney..again, unpaid. He also will lose his health insurance at work and will have to pay for cobra, which is a lot more expensive. Help is desperately needed to help replace some of the lost income and cover added medical expenses and help our family prepare for the unpredictable financial times ahead. Your help is so appreciated!
