Fundraiser Details

Dear Friends and Family,

As many of you may know, I have been struggling with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) for over 30 years.  This genetic and life-threatening disorder has already claimed the life of my mother and oldest brother.  Today I have less than 18% kidney function and need a new kidney urgently.  Otherwise, I'll have to start dialysis - a process that compromises any future transplant and can shorten my lifespan.

My brother and my wife have both offered to be donors, but were disqualified due to medical reasons.  Therefore, I have launched a campaign at www.ShakespeareNeedsAKidney.com to help me find a living donor as well as to raise funds to cover transplant and possible dialysis-related expenses not covered by my insurance.  Some of these additional expenses include lost wages, transportation costs, and room and board for the living donor.   

Would you consider making a donation on my behalf?  I would be very grateful. YouCaring is a nonprofit organization that helps people raise funds for medical and other issues.  Your donation will help increase the likelihood that someone will be willing to give me an incredible gift  -- the gift of life.  

With heartfelt thanks,

David
