Brian Ferrell is a 52-year-old man who is very ill. At the tender age of four, he was diagnosed with diabetes, and had to learn to live with all that went along with it. Brian, one of the most hardworking, dedicated, giving men youâ€™d ever hope to meet, needs our help. A kidney/pancreas transplant is his only hope for survival; however the cost of a transplant is overwhelming.
Brian grew up in Huntington, WV and graduated from Huntington High School where he attended vocational school to study electricity and earn his journeyman license. Just a few years later Brian earned his master electrician license and not long after that he returned to vocational school to study electronics for two years. However, as time progressed, Brianâ€™s illness worsened and in 1992, Brian started losing his eyesight due to his diabetes. Since then he has undergone multiple surgeries to improve his vision but, as determined as Brian is, his illness stopped him from keeping a job for any period of time. He eagerly awaits a time when he can live a healthy life that includes attending his place of worship, Christ Temple Church, and finding ways to help others. However, now Brian needs our help.
