Cuong Needs Your Help

Longtime Longview, TX resident Cuong Tran has been battling a deteriorating kidney condition for the past five years. Luckily, Cuong is a prime candidate for a kidney transplant and has been placed on the Baylor Hospital transplant list in Dallas, TX as well as the ETMC transplant list in Tyler, TX. A new kidney will restore Cuong’s quality of life by bringing him back to better health.

Thanks to the kindness of our friends and family we raised almost $9,000 to assist with medical expenses after Cuong’s kidney transplant. These funds carried us through 22 months worth of doctor’s visits, medications, and numerous hospital stays. What an amazing gift you all gave to us!! We are continuing to accept donations as Cuong’s medical needs have not ended despite having a successful transplant surgery. Please keep him in your prayers. –Uyen

It has been 9 months since Cuong had his transplant. He is doing extremely well with no additional complications. Cuong’s doctors visits have decreased to 1 time per month. He is back to work full-time, six days a week, at Nucor. Winter’s flu season was difficult as so many people were going to the hospital with severe flu symptoms. Cuong was forced to avoid public places such as the grocery store and church to decrease his chances of contracting the flu. The anti-rejection medications suppress Cuong’s immune system making him extremely susceptible to contracting other illnesses. A small cough in you and or I could develop into a severe situation for Cuong. Now, in April, there is finally some relief. He is able to work in the yard outside, take walks, and go to the store. We are hoping to enjoy some down time this summer with perhaps a small road trip here and there.
