Father of three
As many of you know, Chad has been battling end-stage kidney disease and has been told that his only chance at a healthy life is to have a kidney transplant.
He is now in the process of getting ready to begin dialysis as an interim treatment in order to stay alive while he awaits his transplant. We do not know how he will feel once he starts dialysis. With three active kids in sports, Chad does not want to miss anything in their lives.
Chad has medical coverage through Medicare and Medicaid, which is great, but it does not cover all of his medical expenses. We will still face several uninsured transplant-related expenses such as: co-pays and deductibles, doctor visits and the costly immunosuppressant medications that he will need to take for the rest of his life (which will run between $5000 and $10,000 a year). This is a long lasting financial situation â€“ one that we cannot handle without your help. In order for Chad to be placed on the active transplant waiting list he must begin fundraising immediately.
To help reduce this financial burden, a fundraising campaign in Chadâ€™s honor has been established with HelpHOPELive, a nonprofit organization that has been assisting the transplant community for more than 30 years. All donations are tax-deductible, are held by HelpHOPELive in the Great Lakes Kidney Transplant Fund, and are administered by HelpHOPELive for transplant-related expenses only. Please if you can, make a donation today by clicking the DONATE NOW button.
Together we can make a difference! Please help Chad to get his second chance at life. Thank you for your support, kindness and generosity.
