In 2006, Cisco resident Dion was unexpectedly diagnosed with the rare auto-immune disease granulomatosis with polyangiitis. In 2019, a disease flare-up left him with profound hearing loss in both ears and severe damage to his kidneys. He is currently preparing for a life-changing kidney transplant.
When Dion realized the massive potential cost of a kidney transplant, which can easily exceed $440,000 before insurance, he turned to the trusted nonprofit Help Hope Live to fundraise.
His generous community has already raised over $12,500 towards his $50,000 goal!
Unlike a GoFundMe campaign, donations to Help Hope Live in Dion’s honor are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law, and all funds raised will be managed by the nonprofit to cover verified medical and related expenses. Help Hope Live verifies medical and financial need for every patient. Funds raised will not jeopardize his eligibility for state-based benefits.
