Waiting on a transplant just got harder

Zachary Campbell

Transplant candidate Zachary Campbell is pictured with his wife in a beautiful outdoor setting. Zach wears a brown hat, black sunglasses, and a blue t-shirt. His wife wears a tank top with a white geometric pattern and has red hair up in a bun.

Volunteer firefighter Zach Campbell has been living with kidney disease since birth. He spent two years on dialysis, then received a kidney transplant. At eight years old, he entered transplant rejection and re-joined the waiting list for a kidney as he received dialysis to stay as healthy as possible.

At age 10, he received a second kidney transplant that offered him 15 years of healthier life, including meeting and marrying his wife, Sierra. Today, his kidney functioning has dropped to 14%, and he is scheduled to start dialysis again in September.

Zach has had to step away from his job as he maintains his health. Living off a single income with limited insurance help, Zach needs financial help to maintain his hope for a brighter future. That’s why he and his loved ones are continuing to fundraise with Help Hope Live.

“Once he’s back and gets better, he’ll be back serving the community.”
