THE STORY:

UPDATE: As of Thursday Dec 10 we learned that my dad is not eligible for a transplant due to him having severe vascular disease. It is at an advanced state and poses to many risks for my dad if we do surgery. This was a heartbreaking discovery since we were so close to completing the transplant process. But we have been so blessed with the generosity of so many friends, family, and strangers. Thank you for taking the time to stop by our page. 

In Aug of 2010 my dad Jerry Amaro was diagnosed with end stage renal failure at the age of 46. For years my dad had undiagnosed high blood pressure and it eventually took its toll on his kidneys by hardening all the blood vessels and essentially petrifying his kidneys. Because his kidneys do not work he has been on dialysis 4 hours a day 3x a week for the last 5 years which has been so hard on him physically and mentally. His dialysis schedule and the effects it has on him has made it very difficult for him to work or make a living. My sisters and I have helped care for him during this phase of his life. My dad is all we have left after losing my mom in 2008 and we want him around as long as possible! Dialysis is so hard on the body and this transplant will free him to live a healthy and active life once again.

After talking to the transplant coordinator in Salt Lake City they informed us that he would have to pay $10,000 out of pocket for just his portion of the surgery. This is not to mention his after care, housing near the hospital post surgery, any of my medical expenses or wages not being earned during the process. This is a big mountain for us to tackle but I know with the support of those around us we can get there! Thank you for your time and for your support!
