Retired Army Veteran Needs a Kidney

Retired Sgt. Richard Pomelow of Maine took ill suddenly in May of 2016. The doctors discovered upon his admittance that he only had 10% kidney function. After 2 weeks of flushing out his system and a kidney biopsy, Richard and I were told he needed a transplant. Rick is a gentle giant and a loving and devoted father and husband, and now he needs our help. The cost of a transplant can be overwhelming.

Rick had a procedure on his fistula yesterday. They had to put two balloons up by shoulder area to open up. Hopefully this will allow proper flow and filtration of his blood. The Dr said she still hears a revving there, which was why the procedure was done. Fingers crossed all will be well ❤ In regards to fundraiser July 13 at Applebee’s in Waterville Me, you must have flyer to present to server . You can print from the Events Page on Facebook.
