Carrion Manson's family is fundraising for medical costs of medications needed for kidney transplant patients.

We are putting forth a heartfelt request for donations for Carrion Manson. Carrion (Calvin) Manson is fundraising for costs related to his kidney transplant that will not be covered by his current insurance plan. Please help us make a difference in his life. With your help, I hope that’s possible. Calvin has been a diabetic for about 22 years and last year began dialysis treatments due to kidney failure. Unfortunately, diabetes is the # 1 disease affecting the lives of so many people today. It is a serious condition that can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, loss of a limb, and kidney failure. When the kidneys fully shut down, death is imminent. Time is running out.

Calvin has been evaluated for a transplant and is listed at Georgia Health Sciences (formally MCG) in Augusta, GA. His oldest son will be the donor and the procedure has been approved by our insurance. Yet, we will not be able to proceed with the transplant unless we are able to raise money to cover the cost of medications which he will need to take for the rest of his life. The money raised will be used for payment of anti-rejection medications. The cost of immunosuppressive medications typically ranges from $20,600 to $32,900 per year and even with insurance, medical co-pays can be unaffordable.

I want to take this opportunity to encourage everyone to continue to be informed about the effects of diabetes and to be vigilant about your own health. Thank you for your support.
