Ryan Kelso's family and friends are uniting to raise money to help him to get on the list for a kidney transplant for his 30th Bday present!

Ryan Kelso has always been a giver, someone that cares more about his family and friends than his own needs. He is a genuine and optimistic spirit who always brings a smile to the people he meets. Unfortunately he has battled type 1 Diabetes for 20 years, and 5 years ago he was blinded by it and had laser surgeries to correct that. Now it has affected his kidneys and it has become Stage Renal Disease, which is threatening to take his life from him. Recently his health has taken a deep plunge and he is on dialysis three times a week however he still remains positive and pushes to work one day a week and encourages his friends and family to not lose hope. But now is a critical time for those who are touched by his strength and love to come together and bring him their support, because he really is in need of our help. As he approaches his 30th birthday he must have a kidney transplant and in order to even get on a waiting list he needs to raise $25,000. Please support in any way you can to give Ryan the best 30th birthday present he could imagine, a chance to live.
