Gerald Needs Our Help!

As many of you know, Gerald (Ger) Brunckhorst has been struggling with chronic kidney failure and has been on dialysis for about seventeen years. GER RECEIVED HIS KIDNEY ON SEPTEMBER 5, 2020! Woohoo! Now he must stay in Los Angeles for recovery and anti-rejection treatment for two to three months. Can you help with this expensive journey?

Ger is recovering well after transplant. on Sept. 21, he had a five hour infusion of the drug Rituxan to help his body accept his new kidney. Tomorrow, Sept. 25th, we drive into Cedars-Sinai again for lab draws. Next Monday is another infusion. Thank you so much to all who have donated or said prayers and well wishes our way. We so appreciate it and love you all!

GER RECEIVED A KIDNEY TRANSPLANT ON 9-4-20!! We are so thrilled! It’s working great and he is in recovery mode. Ger was released from the hospital 9-10-20, and we have temporarily moved into a studio apartment in Los Angeles so we can go to bi-weekly appointments and treatments for anti-rejection at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Ger needs to be close by the Center for two to three months. After that, he will need to fly to Los Angeles once per month for 6 to 12 months.
