Thomas Taylor enlisted in the Army in 1975 after graduating high school serving four years active duty as a 63B light-wheel vehicle mechanic and wheel wrecker operator in the Army Security Agency (ASA). He was deployed with an infantry unit to Korea from 1977-1978 and was part of the security at the DMZ.

After his active service was completed in 1979, Thomas did two years in the Reserves as a mechanic but this time in a medical unit. He took business classes at a community college as a part-time student and worked at a cleaning business working his way up to owning the company four years later in 1983. After running
his own business for 40 years, Thomas sold it and partially retired in 2023. He continues to work a few days a week in sales for the new owners because he likes to keep busy.

Thomas has been battling kidney failure due to an autoimmune disease that attacks his kidneys; he previously received two kidney transplants, the first from his exterminator and the second from a cadaver donor. His last kidney failed in 2010 and he has been reliant on dialysis for the past 14 years. Closely watching his diet and exercising six days/week in his home gym have helped Thomas keep going and living as normal a life as he can. He has four adult children and seven grandkids; will you help him be around for them for many years to come?

Thomas 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 551-449-8319.
