Family and friends of Steve Wierengo are raising money to pay for uninsured medical expenses associated with transplantation.
Steve has chosen to fundraise with Help Hope Live in part because Help Hope Live assures fiscal accountability of funds raised and tax deductibility for donors. Donors can be sure that funds donated will be used only to pay or reimburse medically-related expenses. To make a tax-deductible donation to this fundraising campaign, click on the Donate Now button.

First I am sorry, I did not even think about people leaving a message on the Help Hope Live page, I wanted to reach out to you and say Thank You for watching my story and a Huge Thank You for reaching out about donating a Kidney
I am going to give you a few links to get things going
1 will be my facebook page about my journey to be able to keep track of my journey
The 2nd will be the page for St Marys Transplant Living Donors, it will have some basic requirments and a phone number to call
I have an A- Blood Type and You or your wife would have to be A or O to get things rolling, the -/+ part will not matter, they will get you going on that also
Thank You so Much for reaching out!
Have a Great Day

I finally got a chance to escape, sit down and write out Thank You emails for the donations that have been received so far! I am truly blessed to call you my friends.
This morning I started with a blank screen and several emails and have finished sending them, to say the least it has been therapeutic although I am sure a few people at Biggby have wondered why I had tears in my eyes.
To sit here and think back at all of the friendships I have made in my life, kept in touch with and still maintain to this day is amazing to me.
As I wrote in the emails, I do not plan on letting this defeat me, it is just a small bump in the road of life
I Thank You again from the bottom of my heart!

A very good college friend of mine was battling kidney failure. She JUST got a new kidney a few months ago. She is taking steroids so that her body does not reject the new kidney and has been in the hospital a few times due to the doctors thinking she might have started the process of rejection. So far, she is still doing well and has not rejected the kidney! *Fingers crossed* Anyways, I know how difficult it is to battle kidney issues after watching what she has gone through and how its effected her entire life. She can't even eat normal food due to the effects it could have on her new kidney -- not just temporarily, but for life. It's a trying situation. I have donated and best of luck to you. It's a long road ahead and I wish you well and hope you get the support and health needed. I will keep you in my prayers!
