My son Nolan Blair desperately needs a kidney transplant so that the rest of his life will be healthier.
Nolan has been fighting with partial kidney function for many years. It is now getting to the point where the dialysis treatment will soon not work for him. We are seeking to get a transplant so that we can continue to have Nolan with us.

A message from Laela…
I first met Nolan in the summer of 1983, when we attended the elementary summer program at Texas School For The Blind. We became fast friends during the next several summers, as we continued to attend the summer program in our adolescent years. As young adults, we would occasionally get together to see a band, as he was a big musician in those days. In 2000, we lost touch with each other, and reconnected through a mutual friend 14 years later. In the fall of that year, we started dating, and overcame the odds of a long distance relationship. I have seen Nolan cope with, and adapt to so much adversity in his life. He has had to adjust to complete vision loss in his 30’s, and more recently, the effects of renal failure, and becoming an amputee. He inspires me to be a better person, and I am so thankful for him! We just keep looking forward to the future, and walking through this life hand in hand.

Nolan Blair has been my mentor for over 10 years. He has been an amazing gentleman who guide me through my career and personal life. I would be lost without him if I didn't have him in my life. Now I see why God put him in my path. He is my brother who stand up for me when I need him. I am his sister who will stand up for him when he needs me. He deserve the best in life. We are both deafblind and we relate a lot for what it takes to be us. One thing for sure, he never stop believing in me when I ddn't. He's smart with great potential and heart. Love you, Nolan. Thank you for everything you have done for me. At last, may God to be with you all the way!
