Good Morning Everybody,

Life is amazing!
It has been over 9 months since my beautiful donor and friend Hudson gave me the gift of life. I am in good health and still visit the great team of doctors for checkups.

So now, I am now planning ahead for the second phase of this story. I am being placed on the national list for a Pancreas, thus ending my diabetes and extending the life of my kidney. I am going to need financial assistance during my recovery post transplant.

All of you that donated to my cause, I am so grateful, and now, ask to help me again. If you have anybody that may be touched by my story, please pass this link on.

God bless you all,

Hello all,
I am coming to my first month a kidney transplant recipient. It has been a unique challenge and God has been there for me the whole way. My doctors say that I am actually ahead of the game, function wise, but have some serious med related anxiety meltdowns. My Team has helped me through and for that I am grateful. I am still in a position of unemployment so if you are reading this and have any extra funds in your life, I sure could use the help. All The Best. David
