Greg Wohar’s Kidney Transplant Update
As some of you may already know, Greg received his Gift of Life – a kidney transplant – on April 18, 2015.

I feel so very blessed to be able to mark one year of a successful transplant tomorrow! Overall, I’ve been doing well, despite several complications. This past week, I had a routine one year follow-up kidney biopsy, and the doctors told me that the kidney is functioning well. Being free from dialysis this past year has allowed me to have a fuller life – something that I cannot put a price on. All of you so generously enabled me to get through this first year financially — as a large portion of the $8,200 in expenses was met through the fund established on the HelpHOPELive website. I cannot thank you enough.
The ongoing costs of post-transplant medications and procedures are still far more than I am able to manage. If you are able to make another tax-deductible donation through the website at this time, it would really mean a lot to me. I hope that this next year will see the resolution of many of the health issues I have experienced as my kidney continues to adjust to my body. I stay optimistic that I will one day be able to return to full-time employment and pay forward all of the goodness that I have received. God bless you all and especially the family of the anonymous kidney donor whose gift changed my life.

Kidney function is well thus far; praise God! Recently, lost a grant from the kidney foundation that was helping with my insurance premiums. The void leaves me with an additional $4,000 yearly expense, besides the cost of medications, which is challenging on a fixed income-teaching one class only at the college; thus the need for help. Anything that you can contribute would be greatly appreciated. If you are not in a position to donate, could you please offer a prayer for my kidney to continue to function. As always, may God bless you all for your kindness, your help and your consideration in this matter. Greg

Bless you and your family and your healing team, Greg. Your story traveled to me via Anne Rank Simoncelli and I remembered your family.
