Willie Baber is a 44-year-old husband and father from Los Angeles, CA and for the last seven years he has lived without a kidney. Because of the many medical procedures he has had, along with dialysis three times a week, his overall health has suffered and kidney function continues to decline. Willie has been informed that his only chance at a healthy life is to have a kidney transplant.
Even in his present condition, Willie continues to serve his community. In 2009 he received a letter of appreciation for outstanding service from the city of Los Angeles and council woman Jan Perry of the Ninth District for his efforts in feeding the homeless.
