The funds raised here will be used for Mario's medical costs and related expenses that are not covered by insurance.

Mario is 36 years old, married, and the father of three children ages 16, 9, and 9 months. Five years ago he was diagnosed with renal 5 kidney failure and has had dialysis for 12 hrs. every week since then. Mario also works over 30 hrs. per week as a breakfast cook. Michelle, his wife, works part time in the play room at Gold's Gym in East Wenatchee, WA. and is going to school on line to be an accountant. Michelle has Crohn's disease. After five years, they have astronomical medical expenses, plus need $10,000 in his fund at Northwest Kidney Foundation to receive a transplant. Since he lives in Central Washington, they need gas, food, motel, and other living expenses to have his transplant done and stay in Seattle for two months after the transplant. He will also have after care cost such as medication. He is presently active on the transplant list at Virginia Mason Hospital in Seattle, WA. and is just waiting for the call that a donor with O type blood has qualified to be his donor.
