Received - Living Donor

Antonio "Tony" Cuevas is a 69 year old Army Veteran who served from 1973 to 1986 as a Dental Administrator. He was stationed 8 years in Germany and 5 years stateside. Upon his honorable discharge, he worked as a financial case manager within a Minnesota Social Services department.

In 2017 one of Tony's kidneys was removed due to cancer. He has other medical conditions that have damaged his remaining kidney and he has been told he will either need to start dialysis or receive a kidney transplant. The wait for a kidney transplant on the national deceased donor list is estimated to be 5 years long. Many who wait do not survive the wait.

Living kidney donation the best option. Living kidney donation is safe for those who are medically cleared. The extensive testing is conducted and paid for by the VA. Costs related to travel, lodging lost wages can also be covered.
