This is the Daniel Baxter Kidney Transplant Fund. The funds will be used for Dan's medical expenses not covered by insurance.

My dad was diagnosed with kidney failure back in July 2011. He was in the Air Force, so my family and I believed that the VA would help us figure things out, but the VA expected us to move to Pittsburgh for treatment; this was not an option for our family. As the months have progressed, his kidney function has progressively declined. He began dialysis treatments back in March 2012.

My dad is still working, and needs to continue to work because my mom doesn’t. My mom takes care of my grandmother who lives with us, because, she too has health issues. Even though my dad is working, taking on these expenses ourselves has been hard. My dad has decent insurance through his work, but it is still not enough to cover a dialysis treatment, as well as the testing he needs to have done to be put on the transplant list. Times are tough, and on top of the necessities, my parents are working on putting me through my third year of college.

NOW: My dad is having dialysis treatments three times a week. Both my dad’s sister and me have offered to be kidney donors, but we are currently waiting for my father to complete the requirements so he can be placed on the transplant list. That's where we all come in.

Please, take a moment to consider changing not just my dad’s life, but our whole family’s life. Every penny raised counts. The money raised here will be used to pay for my father’s dialysis and the expenses that our insurance does not cover for the transplant.

All your generous contributions, thoughts, and prayers are deeply appreciated!!
