Some of you know me as Durwood Hite while others refer to me by my nickname “Bear”. I have been battling end-stage renal disease for many years and need a kidney transplant. In 2009, I had to start dialysis treatments just to stay alive. I am doing fairly well on this treatment but, after extensive testing, my doctors from the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada (UMC) have determined I am a good candidate for a kidney transplant and will need one soon.
