Vicki has asked me to share this message with all of you. I am devastated to report that Kevin passed away this weekend. Please send your healing prayers to his family as they cope with losing the shining light of their lives.
If you were one of the selfless individuals who stepped forward to be tested as a kidney donor for Kevin, please, do not stop the process. This remains an opportunity for you to give the gift of life to an individual and his or her family, and it is a priceless gift. Kevin's family encourages you to continue the process.
If you are not already registered, sign up as an organ donor today so the end of your life can mean new life for people like Kevin with lives and families impacted by kidney disease and other medical crises. Your decisions reflect Kevin's generosity, compassion and strength of spirit.
Donations are still being collected on Kevin's HelpHOPELive campaign page. Please know that your donations to HelpHOPELive in honor of Kevin online or offline will still be used to cover medical and related out-of-pocket expenses associated with his care.
Thank you for all you have done to support Kevin and his family throughout this journey. Your compassion continues to provide emotional support to all of the loved ones in Kevin's life affected by his passing. Your generosity will not be forgotten.
