Vertiss Powers desperately needs your help. He has been suffering from a severe case of diabetes for many years. Vertiss has done everything possible to keep his medical condition under control, however in more recent years his kidneys have taken a toll from his diabetes, and he is now suffering from end-stage-renal-disease. Vertiss undergoes extensive medical testing so he can be placed on the active transplant listed at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. In order to survive, Vertiss needs a lifesaving kidney transplant, and he needs your help to make his surgery a success.
Vertiss grew up in Jersey City, New Jersey and is known for his impeccable work ethic and tenacity to visit everyone he knows. He worked as a truck driver for many years, which allowed him to travel often and gave him many opportunities to visit his family, grandkids and friends that live across the entire east coast. A father to six loving and supportive children, and grandfather to twelve, Vertiss wants to get better and undergo a transplant, to be able to spend more time with his family.
