Dear Family and Friends,
Angel Rivera is a courageous 59 year old man, father of a daughter, step-father to five others and the grandpa of three adorable grandchildren. He has been battling diabetes for as long as he can remember and has lost his mother and several siblings to this terrible disease. His condition has deteriorated over time and has had to undergo 12 surgeries. He now finds himself in end-stage renal failure and is on dialysis. His doctors have told him that his only chance at a long and healthy life is to have a kidney transplant.
