Help Save Randy’s Life!
Randy Hackley desperately needs your help. At the young age of 47, Randy is facing end-stage-renal disease or kidney failure and is in desperate need of a lifesaving kidney transplant. A few years ago, Randy began the process of dialysis, and has been facing these lengthy and time consuming treatments ever since. Randy is undergoing extensive medical testing along with his best friend, Damon (pictured in the photo) who will be tested to donate one of his kidneys to Randy! A living-donor transplant will hopefully speed up the process of Randy receiving a new kidney. Without a new kidney, Randy will eventually run out of options, and sadly run out of time.

Good morning friends and family!
As we close out this old year and look forward to the new I am feeling very optimistic about the future. I have an appointment for January 14th. where they will check my liver and heart. If things go well I should be on the path to my new organs.
Thank you to all of you that have contributed to my fundraiser. Dialysis alone is $15,000 a month and insurance only cover 80%. If you are looking for end of the year tax deductions please consider making a donation to my fund (helphopelive.org I really appreciate it 🙂
Have a absolutely wonderful New Year! May all your hopes and dreams come true!89

Well good people it has been over a year since I have posted anything here and there is a good reason why. Bear with me because this may take a bit to explain 🙂
I have been trying to get on the transplant list and it just isn’t going to happen…right now. My kidneys have caused damage to my heart so that if I get a new kidney it won’t last. Please know I am fine but if I want a new (to me) kidney I will need a new heart to make sure the kidney stays healthy.
So what does all that mean? It means you can start calling me the Tin Man! I don’t want to be on dialysis forever so I am going to get me one of those new hearts 🙂
Please know that I am fine. I am not in any danger of kicking the bucket now or in the near future. I need the heart IF I want a new kidney. I could go without but I think a life without dialysis isn’t too much to ask for.
Since all of this is going to cost an arm and a leg I am once again going to start taking donations to my HelpHopeLive page. With the end of the year coming up if you want to make a tax deductible donation to my fund I would really appreciate it (helphopelive.org

Hope you are well. Please give me a call 919-698-6912 before tuesday evening. I understand a number of neighbors have made donations and I am sure they will ask how you are doing at the meeting Tuesday night. I have lost your number. I tried the one for Mandy and it seems to be out of service. Best to everyone. - Hal
