Veteran Frank Lasorsa joined the US Navy in 1965 and was deployed to Pearl Harbor from 1966 to 1969. He was honorably discharged as an E5 Draftsman 2nd Class Petty Officer.
After his military service, he worked in HVAC - fabricating duct work systems, roof flashing, copper and stainless hoods.
Frank was widowed in 1992 . He has been married to his 2nd wife, Jan for over 25 years. Together they have raised a beautiful family and are extremely proud of their 6 grandchildren.
In 2019, Frank contracted a disease called Amyloidosis which damaged his kidneys. While he has been off chemo for several years, he is now reliant on a dialysis machine to survive.
A living kidney donor would give Frank the best chance to live the rest of his life untethered from a machine. He put his life on the line to protect our country. He worked hard to support his family and community throughout his life. What better way to give back to a Veteran than to be their hero and step up as their living kidney donor?
Living kidney donation is safe for those who are medically cleared. The evaluation is covered by the transplant center. Costs related to travel, lost wages may also be covered.
