About

Alex has End State Renal Disease and needs a Kidney before its too late.

After over a years worth of hospital visits and being sent home each time with no answers; Alex found out that he had Kidney Disease about 6 years ago, at the young age of 24. He was told by the doctors that it was so far progressed that there was nothing they could do to help (stage 4 kidney disease).

Since that time he has been through more than a man his age should. He is currently on Dialysis and on the Transplant waiting list. This list is long, and he could wait years for a transplant, and even so the survival rate of a kidney from a cadaver is much lower than from a living donor.

We need your help to find someone who would be willing to give a young man his life back. Alex has 4 beautiful children (ages 7, 6, 5 and 1) and so much to live for. He is a talented musician & artist who deserves a chance to live out his dreams and watch his children grow.

If you know anyone who would be interested in donating a kidney please pass the word on. Monetary donations are much appreciated as the medical bills from all of the surgery's, dialysis, and future medical bills for a transplant and helping a possible donor is, and will be, overwhelming. If you would like to donate directly to our family please use the following email address [email protected] via PayPal or email that address for our home address.

1. 1 in 9 American's have Cronic Kidney Disease

2. Kidney transplantation with living donors have a better long-term survival
