Friends of Michael C Pastur are uniting to raise money to help with medical cost and related expenses while he waits for a kidney transplant

About three years ago Michael was diagnosed with two rare blood cancers: Waldenström's Macroglobulinemia, and Secondary Amyloidosis. Complications from fighting the two blood cancers also brought on a heart attack. Michael also fractured his pelvis and had a pulmonary emolus. After chemotherapy treatments, Michael received a stem cell transplant. Michael is presently undergoing Renal Dialysis three times a week for Renal Failure. He is on a waiting list for a kidney transplant. Michael is hopeful for the future and fights for it everyday. Recently he has had more complications of bleeding, staph infection, collapsed lung and pnuemonia which has left him needing to be on oxygen. The side effects of dialysis and severe renal disease are something he lives with daily. He is not able to work at his craft as he would love to. He has extravagant medical and medicines bills and daily living costs. Mike is single, living in Denver with his beloved dog, Stosh.
Michael is a photographer that creates masterful images using film and in camera techniques. He constructs pinhole and Holgapanoramic cameras to create his beautiful images.
He is grateful to his family and friends for all of their love and support.
