Scott has been working towards a transplant now for 2 years. Time has flown by yet been the longest 2 years of our lives. Scott does dialysis 3 days a week now. He is still working full time as a fire fighter and running his locksmith business on the side. He has been so strong and we are hoping to get a transplant soon. We have had so many amazing people test for Scott, but we having found his perfect kidney yet. We are now on the list to do the kidney pairing program, we have a blood type A donor ready and willing but they are not able to donate directly to Scott. We are still looking for a donor for Scott. We will get there!

We are in need of your help.

After 7 months of many amazing people being tested we still have not found a kidney match for Scott. He is on the waiting list but in Utah, that is about 3 years. Much better then some other places that the wait time is about 10 years. Did you know right now there are about 100,000 people waiting for kidney transplants nationwide?

Scott’s best option is a living donor. Before Scott has a transplant they will put him on dialysis and remove both of his kidneys, to lessen the chance that his kidney disease will come back. If we have a living donor in place it means he has less time on dialysis.

Scott is a “B” blood type so he can receive a kidney from a “B or an O” donor. They also have a pairing program where an “A” donor could donate to someone that had a “B or O” donor that matched Scott.

Have you ever thought of donating? Would you like more information? If so please go to Intermountainmedcenter.org/organdonor. There is great information on that page. If you consider donating you can start with filling out the kidney donor questionnaire. Somewhere along the way it will ask if you are applying for a specific person, in which you would answer with ‘Scott Hofler’.

We have been so blessed by all of your prayers and help so far long this journey. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Love, The Hoflers

I'd like to get tested to see if I can donate a kidney to Scott. Where do I sign up to start the process of getting the testing done?
