Ronald Ross is a husband and father who served in the National Guard for six years. He was skilled in many areas, including as an infantry scout; a driver, loader, gunner, and tank commander; and a helicopter technician. He graduated from college with an associate's degree in engineering and received his Master Electrician’s License.

In civilian life, Ron was a repairman for the commercial cooking industry, in the sanitation and hot side of restaurant equipment. He retired in 2020 and started traveling with his wife, Linda, before he began having health issues. Ron’s kidneys began to fail, and he needed to start dialysis. Unfortunately, he now battles fatigue and is less active than he was.

Ron and Linda were big travelers, whether in motorhomes or on motorcycles, and considered themselves “thrill seekers” before Ron was faced with this life-threatening illness. He would love to regain his health and live out the rest of his life doing the things he loves, surrounded by his family. Will you join us in our mission to find a kidney for Ron? 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!

Ron has enlisted the help of a veteran's organization called DOVE Transplant, which is assisting in his outreach to find a life-saving kidney donor. DOVE will assist all prospective donors throughout the process and ensure 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.
