Anthony has a genetic kidney condition called Polycystic Kidney Disease that has permanently damaged his kidneys over time. He is now reliant on daily home dialysis treatments to survive. Anthony is proud dad to 6 children and 10 grand children and he lives in Ohio with his wife of 25 years.

Anthony's children had stepped up to offer their kidneys but each one of them had issues or had same genetic condition that may one day impact their health.
