Arnold “Arnie” Weiss was drafted into the US Army in 1968, had his basic training at Fort Bragg, and worked as a cook at Fort Lee in Virginia. After serving 2 years of active duty, he joined the National Guard in Teaneck, NY, and served four years.

After the reserves, Arnie worked at his father’s fur and tanning business until 1981 when he decided to drive to California and start a new life for himself working in sales in the clothing and textile business until retiring in 2020. Arnie and his wife Karen have been married for 28 years and have two adult children; his daughter is serving in the Navy. He coached his kids when they were growing up; his son in baseball and his daughter in softball. He enjoys golfing, jogging, and spending time with his family.

Arnie was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease (PKD) in 2013 and sadly, lost his father to kidney disease in 1987. Fortunately, he has not started dialysis and desires to receive a kidney transplant before it becomes necessary for survival. Will you consider sharing his story of service to his country and his need for a living kidney donor? Might you consider giving him the gift of life?

Arnie has enlisted the help of a Veteran's organization called DOVE Transplant which is helping in his outreach to find his life-saving kidney donor. DOVE will assist all prospective donors throughout the process and make sure they do not incur any out-of-pocket expenses related to the evaluation or surgery.

A healthy person can live a normal life with one kidney and save this Veteran's life! Please click on the link below if you would like to learn more OR call 551-233-1611.
