Nick Klekot, our dad, and loving husband to our mom Cathy, is now in kidney failure and needs a transplant to survive. We are asking the help of our family and friends to join us in raising funds for Help Hope Live in honor of our dad, that will assist in the high medical costs involved throughout his difficult journey ahead.
Nick, a caring and devoted husband to my mother, worked swing shift as a steelworker for 40 years, consummately providing for his family, until retiring under advisement from his doctor. Throughout those many years, Nick has always maintained a sense of humor and high spirits, even while caring for my mother who has had continued health issues throughout her own life. Even through working shift work, overtime, holidays, and then coming home to help his wife and kids, he could still crack a joke, or otherwise bring a smile to our faces. His fun-loving and ever young attitude has helped him throughout his life, but now he approaches an arduous, and life-threatening struggle and he needs our help.

Dear Mr. Klekot, I’ve known your son for a number of years and he is one of the most kind, considerate, and caring friends I’ve ever had. I can’t help but think he learned this from your example. Wishing you hope and healing as you embark on this journey.
