My dad is diagnosed with a rare kidney disease that is requiring a transplant, I'm asking for your help to get us through this tough time.

Let me tell you about my dad.

My dad has supported me throughout everything I've done in life, whether it's from football, to wrestling, to baseball. Throughout the 18 total seasons I've done sports, he's always found a way to be there and show his support and encouragement. When it omes to school my dad is always pushing me to get the best grades and be the best person I can be. My hope is for my dad to be around to witness me grow into the man that he has raised me to become.

In 2008 my dad was diagnosed with Membranous Nephropathy, I was 11 at the time and all I knew was that my dad was sick. This whole thing hadn't really made its mark on me until this past April when my dad came home from the doctor's and had to explain that his kidneys have failed to the point that dialysis was an immediate necessity. After seemingly endless visits to the doctor, we learned that a transplant was a necessity.

Through numerous conversations with my grandma, I learned that the medical bills from all of these procedures were adding up and will only continue to grow once the transplant is complete.

I appreciate you taking the time to learn about our family and helping out in any way you can.
