This is the Jerry Steinke Kidney Transplant Fund. The funds will be used for Jerry's transplant expenses not covered by insurance.

I have been friends and neighbors with Jerry Steinke here in Jensen Beach, FL since I moved here in 2005. He is 52 years old and has never married.

Jerry lost his leg in an accident over 8 years ago and just last year in 2011 he was diagnosed with diabetes and kidney failure. He now spends 3 days a week in the dialysis center. His kidney doctor has approved him for a kidney transplant and he is currently on the waiting list. Because of his health problems Jerry is currently on disability but he has to work part time to supplement his disability checks. 

Jerry has been told that he will need at least $5000.00 or more to cover his extra expenses not covered by medicaid during his kidney transplant. Medicaid does not cover the 6 week post op housing and living expenses required of a patient who does not live near the Orlando transplant center.  Because of his current circumstances it would be impossible at this time for Jerry to come up with this amount of money.

If you would like to help Jerry please donate to his kidney transplant fund.  Any amount would be greatly appreciated. Let's help Jerry get his life back.
