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 thirteen 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.

Today Gerald had his seventh plasmapheresis treatment of this trip. Right now he is getting an IVIG infusion with a dialysis treatment. The plasmapheresis removes his plasma which in turn removes his antibodies that are preventing him from accepting a kidney. The IVIG tricks his body into not immediately making more antibodies to replace the ones he lost. After almost three weeks of treatments in Los Angeles, we are almost ready to go back home. The next step – Hope, pray, and wait for the right kidney to come along. Thanks to all of you for your love, prayers and contributions both monetary and in kind. We love you all!
