Dear Friends, Family and Community,

Will Hartz has many titles: single dad to Veronica (13) and Brodie (11), loyal employee and good friend to many. But he’s also a dialysis patient in need of a life-saving kidney transplant. He is now on the waiting list for this life-saving procedure.

HI Will. I started a go fund me on your behalf and I transfered what was left after gofundme took their part to this fund so that everyone can focus on this one. My Julian also attends Hawthorne, which is how I learned of your story. I pray that God provides you with everything you need and so much more. And I will keep you and your family in my prayers. God bless you.
