Family and friends of Austin Schaffer are raising money to pay for uninsured medical expenses associated with transplantation.
Austin is 22 years old and he was diagnosed with Stage 5 Kidney Failure on July 20, 2016. He was experiencing no symptoms and his diagnosis came completely out of nowhere. Austin has not let his illness get him down, and he is still his normal, joking self. To look at him, you would never know that he is sick, however he is tired most of the time and is in constant pain. He currently is on dialysis three days per week. He needs a kidney transplant as dialysis isn’t a permanent fix for him.
