Charles now needs to count on us - his community - to help him. He has been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease and has been placed on a wait list for a life saving kidney transplant. The wait for a kidney from a deceased donor is over 5 years long. A living kidney donor would give Charles the best chance to be free from dialysis for the rest of his life. Kidney donation is safe for those who are medically cleared. Costs related to the donation are covered. You can live a normal life with one kidney and save a Veteran's life with the other!
