Joseph Salazar, a resident of Farmington, New Mexico, is in need of a kidney transplant and needs the help of his community to make this happen! Transplants are life saving but very expensive.
Two years ago, Joe was diagnosed with stage 3 kidney failure, a debilitating disease that attacks his kidneys requiring him to be on peritoneal dialysis every single night. He has a passion for cooking but, due to his illness, he is no longer able to participate in those large catering events he loves. He misses being carefree, participating in family activities, and contributing to his community. At this point he is completely dependent on dialysis. His only chance to return to good health is a kidney transplant.

Friends and Family,
An update for all of those who have followed my dear friend, Joe’s, story…
A slight set back has occurred due to a tear in Joe’s peritoneal catheter. Upon blood tests and x-rays it was found that Joe’s peritoneal cavity now had a bacterial infection.
After a week long stay at San Juan Regional Medical Center in Farmington, New Mexico Joe was sent home with his Peritoneal Catheter removed and placed on Hemo-Dialysis.
Joe’s Hemo-Dialysis last 4 hours 3 times a week and is to be continued until there is no sign of a bacterial infection remaining in his peritoneal cavity.
Needless to say, no time is better than now to push for his kidney surgery! So please help us get the word out on his fund raising, every bit helps!
Donate now for you last chance to enjoy tax savings in 2014!
