Fabien Needs Your Help!
My husband, Fabien Avila, is only 55 years old. He is a loving husband, father and grandfather. Fabien was diagnosed with kidney failure about ten years ago and it has been his dialysis treatments that have kept him alive for nine and a half of those years.
When Fabien was diagnosed, he couldn’t imagine a life lived on a machine. Then a miracle happened that turned that around. We were blessed with a newborn baby! Over these many years, it has been his two children, eight adoring grandchildren and our nine-year-old whom we adopted when he was three who inspire him to face each day with a determination to live.
Fabien’s doctors at Oklahoma University determined he now needs a kidney transplant to survive. Unfortunately, even with insurance, medical expenses have begun to accumulate and will continue long after Fabien receives his transplant. Those out-of-pocket costs include the medications he is currently taking and the enormously expensive post-transplant anti-rejection medications he will need to take for the rest of his life and many expenses unknown to us yet. Fabien and his family cannot face this financial challenge alone and are turning to you to ask for your help.
To help with the financial burden of Fabien’s uninsured expenses, a fundraising campaign in his honor has been established with Help Hope Live, a trusted nonprofit organization that has been providing community-based fundraising guidance to patients and their families for more than 30 years. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law, are held by Help Hope Live in the South-Central Kidney Transplant Fund, and are administered by Help Hope Live for transplant-related expenses only. Please consider a contribution.

Family means everything to Fabien and we pray God will bless him with many more days to spend with us and to see his children and grandchildren grow. Your prayers, support and generosity are greatly appreciated. God bless you for helping give him his life back.
With sincere gratitude,
Debbi Avila (Fabien’s wife)
