Jon’s disease hasn’t slowed him down; he is a dedicated husband and father. He continues to work hard everyday as an industrial electrician with Duke Power, while taking classes at St. Pete College to obtain his BS-Electrical Engineering.
Jon’s insurance will help with some of the costs of this life-saving surgery, but he will still have many uninsured, transplant-related expenses such as: co-pays and deductibles, doctor visits, temporary travel and relocation for Jon and his living donor and caregiver, and the costly immunosuppressant medications that he will need to take for the rest of his life. Tampa General has estimated Jon’s out-of-pocket expenses just for the transplant will be $10,000, plus another $10,000 to cover some of the first-year medications. This presents a financial challenge that Jon and I cannot meet alone.
To help offset his uninsured costs, a fundraising campaign in Jon’s honor has been established with HelpHOPELive (formerly NTAF), a nonprofit organization that has been assisting the transplant community for nearly 30 years. All contributions are tax-deductible, are held by HelpHOPELive in the Southeast Kidney Transplant Fund, and are administered by HelpHOPELive for transplant-related expenses only. You can help make a difference in Jon’s life.Please consider making a contribution.
