David is a 34 year old devoted father and wonderful husband with ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease). He has been on dialysis and waiting for a kidney since 2008. He is blood type O+. Please click about below to learn more about his story.
At the age of 14, David got strep throat. When it was left untreated by his physician, it shut down his vital organs resulting in both of his kidneys being severely damaged which is known as post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis. He was able to maintain a normal life on medication for 14 more years. In 2008, David began Peritoneal Dialysis. In 2012, David had to begin hemodialysis as PD was no longer working well. David would like to receive a kidney so that he can resume a normal life again and be able to work full time and be more active in playing with his 2 year old son. David is listed at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, IL. You may reach out to Loyola Transplant’s Team at 708-327-4897. Loyola participates in paired kidney matching program, so anyone with any blood type that is willing to donate in my honor will be appreciated.
