Learn more about Jeff and how you can help be a hero.
Jeff is in desperate need of a new kidney. In 2008 he received a kidney transplant that served him very well until the fall of 2019 when it inexplicably began to fail. During the pandemic last year he was placed on a transplant list. Since that time his health has continued to decline. He has no kidney function and had to start hemodialysis February 2021.
In June 2021 we began doing this at home to provide more flexibility and allow more frequent, gentler dialysis. We do this 4 hr/day four times a week and it usually leaves Jeff feeling lousy and wiped out for the rest of the day. Because his kidneys no longer work, the only way to remove fluids that used to pass through his bladder is by dialysis.
