Lazerick served in the US Navy for five years. During that time he worked as an administrator before moving to the Admirals' office.
During his time in the Admirals' office, Lazerick became sick with cancer and had to be medevaced from Japan to stateside where he underwent treatment. He then developed heart failure as a result of the treatment and had to undergo a heart transplant in 2017. Shortly after the transplant, his kidneys failed and he has been on dialysis ever since. He and his wife Lisa will have been married 30 years next June and have three boys. Lazerick started school for fashion design, and it continues to be a hobby. During his service, he was awarded a First Navy-Marine Corps Overseas Service Ribbon and the National Defense Service Medal for his role in helping local natives and the volcano clean up after a volcano erupted while he was stationed in the Philippines. He also received the First Joint Meritorious Unit Award and Letters of Recommendation and Appreciation from CO.
Receiving a living donor kidney would give Lazerick his life back and enable him to be more active with his children and to live life to the fullest. Lazerick 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.
