Tim Cannon is a 51-year-old male who is very ill. After 30+ years of struggling with Type-1 Juvenile Diabetes, a kidney transplant is his only hope for survival. His diabetes took a toll on his health and his eyesight in 2000, when he was determined disabled and unable to work.Tim is one of the friendliest, most outgoing persons you would ever hope to meet and he needs your help. The cost of a transplant can be overwhelming with out-of-pocket costs in excess of $20,000.
Tim grew up in Edgewater, MD and graduted from South River High School. He worked as a plumber in Washington, DC and in 1993 he married his wife, Tracey. In 1997 they moved to East Tennessee and currently reside in Blountville, TN. Tim has a passion for drag racing, camping and fishing. He continues to race as well as support his wife and friends in their racing endeavors, in addition to lending his support to our local drag racing bracket program, DER at Bristol Dragway.

August 4, 2016…My situation regarding a kidney transplant has taken an undetermined path due to the possible complication of a cancerous tumor on my right kidney. My kidneys have deteriorated down to 10% kidney function. I go to Vanderbilt Hospital August 16, 2016 to find the outcome of cancer or not. Regardless of that outcome, it is necessary for dialysis to survive until it can be determined if I am eligible for a kidney transplant. I have insurance that pays 80% and my co-pay each dialysis treatment is 20%. It has been determined that each dialysis treatment is in excess of $2,000.00 every other day. This makes my co-pay $400.00 every other day.
