Ross Garrison is a 60-year-old man who needs your help. He has end-stage renal disease (ESRD) that was caused by Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD). After years of health struggles, Ross now needs a life-saving kidney transplant.
Ross is originally from the Lansing, MI, but moved to Florida with his family in the late 60’s. From there he migrated to the Charlotte, NC where he now resides. Working as a mechanical designer/engineer, he has been with his current company for 23 years. Seven years ago Ross learned that he had PKD – the same illness that claimed the life of his mother in April 1973 (long before any technology was available to detect it). He also has been through two double partial nephrectomies, (removal of 60% of each kidney through surgery), and he has no option left but to have a transplant soon. He and his family are staying positive and are ready for the transplant to help him re-start his life

well here is the latest… And I don’t know if I have enough strength to type it all in… After having my right Kidney removed, I developed a bad infection in the cavity that the kidney left, so I had to go back into the ER to be re-admitted. OK, so 1 week later I’m still in ICU. Think they have the infection under control… Bag hanging out of my side draining infection out. OK let’s go back home. Not so fast dude !! Another problem has arisen. Internal bleeding !! Bad internal bleeding. To the tune of 6 transfusions !! OK so we’re goin back in for more surgery to repair bleeding. Finally got it day b4 yesterday!! I’m still in ICU !
Please, I still need help !!
Thank You, Ross G.
