Robert Brown is a 43-year-old Army Veteran who served nine years in the reserves with 1.5 years of active duty in Kuwait between 2001 and 2003. He worked as a 92 G Culinary Specialist attached to a Chemical Corps unit and was cross-trained to perform force protection duties overseas; he finished his reservist time in 2010.
Robert worked as a tractor-trailer driver doing both regional and local runs most of his career and also owned his own trucking business for a time. In 2017, Robert woke up with a swollen tongue thinking it was an allergic reaction, and headed to get medical help. After the results of routine bloodwork, he found himself on dialysis and his doctors are unclear why Robert’s kidneys failed. In the past year, he acquired 100% disabled status and is now focusing on his health and finding a kidney donor.
Robert has four sons from 14 to 23 years old. He and his fiancé Danisha have an August 2024 wedding planned! He enjoys bowling, playing darts, watching scary movies, and riding motorcycles. He belongs to a chapter of the Chosen Breed Motorcycle Club. Robert is a private person who loves his family, desires to marry the love of his life in August and live a long and productive life. Will you help this young man regain his health, whether by sharing his story or donating a kidney?
Robert 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.
