Corey Pass is a Correction Officer with the State of Alaska, he lives in Eagle River, Alaska with his wife and daughter. Corey has kidney failure from juvenile diabetes, his sister, Jamie Pass lovingly donated her kidney to Corey on June 7, 2011. He has undergone weeks of follow-up care under the expert care of the Virginia Mason kidney transplant team. He and his wife stayed in Seattle, WA for 8 weeks for follow-up care.
Family and friends of Corey Pass are raising money to pay for uninsured medical expenses associated with transplantation.
Corey has chosen to fundraise with HelpHOPELive – The Leader in Fundraising Assistance and Support for Transplant and Catastrophic Injury in part because HelpHOPELive provides both tax-deductibility and fiscal accountability to contributors.

Recovery Week five to seven
The final follow-p in Seattle was July 25, 2011. We got the ok to go home! We were so happy, being gone from our beautiful State was hard during the summer months.
We shipped our maintenence supplies home and got on a plane on the 26th. The first Alaska Airlines flight out of the day.
The NTAF funds were so important for our survival there, we nearly raised enough for the majority of the stay. We realize that the funds will not cover all expenses, and so far we are doing so well with your continued suppoort. Please sign in the guest book so I know you visited my page! Mahalo, Thank you, Quyana, God Bless!

Recovery Week Four
Refilling medications was a real eye-opener. The anti rejection/immuno-supression medication is $653 to $1519 per month! We are so thankful that these medications are mostly paid by insurance, however there are hundereds of dollars each month that we need to cover in just co-pays.
The new kidney likes lots of water each day, we go for lab draws every other day to check how the kidney function is doing.
Blood pressure has been all over the place, a therapy pup should do the trick. Her name is Marley, a 14 week old boxer to keep Corey CHILL.
