A Donor has been Found!!
November 06, 2016

The day is here! A kidney donor has been found! Nick and Mazzy are on their way to Denver right now, with surgery likely tomorrow (Monday) AM. See More

EVENT DATE Jun 25, 2016

THE STORY:

Hello friends and family, My beautiful and spirited 13 year old niece, Mazzy Lynn Fortier, recently discovered that the pain in her stomach was due to a failing kidney. Her (single) father, and my brother, Nick Fortier, was informed quickly after that she was in Stage 4 Kidney failure and was in need of a transplant. While Mazzy is doing much better now, and her prognosis is positive, this news has changed their lives dramatically.

Mazzy now requires to be on dialysis 8 hours/night (administered by Nick) until she is able to receive a transplant. They will now need to take frequent trips to Denver (6 hours from their hometown in Durango), all of which results in missed work and juggling schedules. Mazzy is now on a very strict diet, taking a regular course of meds and tested regularly to make sure she's doing well. She's is strong-willed and positive, and Nick is as devoted to her well-being as any father would be.

We're raising money to help Nick and Mazzy in these tough times for whatever they may need. Travel, hotel stays, meds, bills, food, etc.

In an effort to help, his amazing friends in Durango will be hosting a Silent Auction and Benefit Concert on Saturday June 25th at Ska Brewery in Durango, CO. All proceeds from the auction will go directly to Nick and Mazzy.

We are also asking for any donations you may be willing to provide for the silent auction. Do you make or sell great things? Maybe a gift certificate to a favorite place? Perhaps a special item collecting dust in your closet? Please reach out to me and I will point you in the right direction!

For those of us unable to make the benefit concert...well, that's what this site is for! On behalf of Nick and Mazzy, and his family, we are truly humbled and forever grateful for all of the kindness and support that has been, and will be sent their way during this challenging time.

Mazzy is Nick's heart, and words cannot express how much she means to him. Thank you, from all of us...
