Waiting

Staff Sergeant Joseph Quiles is a husband and father who served with the New Jersey Army National Guard for 21 years in a Motor Transport Unit. He was called up for active duty for four of those years during the Iraq War, serving one year in Iraq, stationed at Fort Dix as protection, and was retrained and worked as a prison guard for a year.

Joe retired in 2024 after 25 years of service for the Department of Corrections in NJ, working at the Mountain View Youth Corrections Facility and the Edna Mahan Women’s Facility. With Lake Hopatcong in his backyard, he has easy access to the things he loves: swimming, boating, and fishing. He enjoys helping others and continues to do what he can.

Joe has been diagnosed with FSGS (focal segmental glomerulosclerosis), a kidney disease that causes scar tissue to form and the kidneys fail. He is not yet reliant on dialysis for his survival, but the doctors tell him he is close, and he is getting prepared. Joe has quietly fought this illness for over 20 years and a new kidney would mean he can enjoy more time with his loved ones. Will you join us in our mission to find a kidney for Joe? Your support, whether through spreading the word on social media or considering becoming a donor, can make a profound impact on his life and the life of his family!

Joe 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.
