Gary is my dad. My moms name is Shannon and they are both 39 years old. I'm Sam and I am 11 years old and we all live in Reno with my dog Jazzy. My mom and dad have been through a lot, mom said they have been together since they were 16 years old. She said my dad was diabetic even in high school. My mom joined the military after I was born because she was trying to help my dad with his medical but he just got worse when he got older. My mom had to leave the military in 2009 but then my dad had kidney failure in 2010. He's been on the list for a new kidney and we are waiting for a call from the University of Utah any minute now. I found out that there is a lot more to this than just paying for surgery. When we get there, my mom and I have to find a temporary place to stay and we pretty much have to live there for a few months because my dad can't leave Utah. He will have appointments every day that my mom has to take him to for the first three weeks, then more follow ups and check ups at least once or twice a week for the next 12 or 16 weeks until he fully recovers. Mom said the hard part is that she will have to leave work for that time and she only has 2 weeks of vacation pay left. So I am writing this today to ask anyone for help so that we can afford to stay in Utah until my dad fully recovers. My mom knows I am setting up this account, she helped me with it and thank you to anyone who helps us out.
