Thinking of and sending positive thoughts and vibes out today to my friend Allie Parker and her brother. Tomorrow Allie donates a kidney to him. My thoughts and prayers are with you both champ. You are an amazing woman!

Hi folks, I have been meaning to post a message on fb for a month or so now, on June 1, 2015 i will be doing a kidney transplant with my brother! As you may or may not know, in the past we were raising money for this transplant, and thanks to a lot of you and our family and friends he is now able to get this transplant! My brother has struggled with Juvenile Diabetes (type 1 diabetes) for over 20 years now, and has been on dialysis for about 4 years now. As soon as we do this transplant he will no longer have to hook up to a machine 3 days a week to filter his blood…this is huge for him and us! He will still have diabetes, and a few other issues, but at least he can live a more normal life like the rest of us.
