The Story

Ronnie Helm has dedicated his life to helping children, and now he needs our help.  Ronnie has been battling diabetes since 1991.  He has been on dialysis since 2012, but it is now time to go to the next step -- a kidney transplant.  Currently, Ronnie is #3 on the transplant waiting list for Temple.  However, insurance is not going to cover the cost of all of his medical expenses.  This is why we are asking for help from all of his friends, family, and the people whose lives he has touched over his lifetime.

Ronnie has been in the education business since 1990.  He started out as a teacher and coach at Calvert, Texas.  In 1994, he started his long career at College Station ISD.  He started out as a social studies and PE teacher as well as a football, baseball, and track coach.  He moved into administration, and was an Assistant Principal at College Station Middle School, A&M Consolidated Middle School, A&M Consolidated HS, and the former Timber Academy.  He currently serves as an Assistant Principal at College View High School and the CSISD DAEP.

Ronnie has a family support system of his wife, Sonia, and his son, daughter, and 7 grandkids.

We would like to reach out to his extended support system, and we ask you to donate whatever you can to help offset his expenses of this life saving surgery.  Let's show him the love and support he has given to us throughout his lifetime.  

Please, give the gift of life to Ronnie Helm!!!  

Thank you for your support.
