Help Leonard Get a Kidney Transplant
Leonard Samartino is in total kidney failure and needs a kidney transplant. Leonard’s kidney disease began in 2005 and worsened to the point that he began dialysis in 2010. Since dialysis is never a permanent solution, he is now approaching the top of the transplant list to receive a kidney. Though transplants are life-saving, they are extremely expensive and Leonard will need help with the associated costs of food, housing and multiple trips to and from the hospital.
Leonard has been playing music since childhood. He is a master of his instrument, an exceptional musical talent. Playing music has been Leonard’s saving grace during this time of debilitating disease. Leonard looks forward to returning to playing live performances when he feels better. Friends and fans miss his musical spark that has been quieted as he battles this disease.
Family and friends of Leonard Samartino are raising money to pay for uninsured medical expenses associated with transplantation.
Leonard has chosen to fundraise with HelpHOPELive in part because HelpHOPELive assures fiscal accountability of funds raised and tax deductibility for donors. Donors can be sure that funds donated will be used only to pay or reimburse medically-related expenses. To make a tax-deductible donation to this fundraising campaign, click on the Donate Now button.
