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 sixteen years. He is hoping for a kidney transplant to save his life. Ger is such a caring person and he needs our help. The cost of a transplant and the special treatment he needs to get one can be overwhelming.

Since we went to ~ Cedar-Sinai medical center in October Gerald has had five plasmapheresis treatments and 2 IV I G treatments over two weeks in Kalispell. He flies out Thursday, November 14, to go to ~ Cedar-Sinai in LA for his first drug Trial shot this time around. Then he’ll go back again once a month for six months. On Thursday he’ll fly out at 6 AM and arrive back in Montana at midnight. It’ll be a one heck of a long day but should save money since he won’t have to stay overnight. Please send prayers that everything will go well. See photos for pictures of the plasmapheresis machine.

Cedars has a very promising new drug trial. This will be the 5th! trial as the other times didn’t do the trick. They are pretty confident about this one however. They call it Clava and say it is much stronger than the previous drugs they tried. This one prevents the bad antibodies from forming altogether. The catch is he has to fly to Cedars from Montana once a month to get the treatment. We are sure this is the treatment that will work for Ger. The money raised on this site previously went towards the many trips to Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles we have made on the previous research studies so we are starting from scratch.
