This fundrasier is for a young man named Daryl Gilyard Jr. who is awaiting a kidney transplant. Please show your support,thank you God Bless

Daryl was diagnosed in Atlanta, Georgia with end-stage renal disease better known as Kidney Disease at the age of 23. The reason for his diagnosis was a unaware condition to him of untreated high blood pressure. Daryl has been under going a treatment for his condition called Dialysis which is performed by two needles inserted into the body connected by a machine that cleans his blood from toxins and excess fluid (3 times a week 3.5 hours each day) which his kidneys can no longer do on there own. He has been fighting this disease for 4 years now trying to live a normal life at the young age of now 27. He is now awaiting a kidney transplant which should bring his life back to normal.

As many of you might know, there is no cure for renal failure. However, we remain hopeful that he will beat the odds of being on dialysis for the rest of his life, and grateful for each day we are given.

Daryl is a full-time student trying to make a better life for himself. He is very ambitious and a very strong minded young man who I believe want to get back out in the world and be apart of normal society again. I would like to extend this invitation to help Daryl to achieve a normal life again outside of a medical building weekly. He has medical insurance that does not cover all the expenses needed for his transplant. We can't change the disease however we could help Daryl during this trying time in his life. Thank you all for your donations, support and most importantly prayers. We do believe in miracles and we pray for one each day. God bless you and thank you!
