Ferenc
Needs a Kidney

Ferenc Needs a Kidney

 Ferenc "Frank" Jolesz, has dedicated his life to helping people. Despite his health challenges, he balanced the roles of dedicated dad and husband along with his career. He always had time for our gymnastics meets, for trips to Maine and New Hampshire, for watching movies and TV together.

In 2007, due to a build up of inoperable kidney stones, he was diagnosed with kidney failure.  I was able to donate my kidney to my dad immediately and the transplant was a success.  We've shared six very special years together since the transplant surgery--years filled with laughter and love. 

Despite our dad's determination to follow a strict diet and remain kidney stone free, the donated kidney is being rejected by his body, and he is now in the final stage of kidney failure. Now the man whose contributions to medicine have saved the lives of so many is himself in need of help.

He is in URGENT need of a living kidney donor, as he is not a candidate for dialysis due to his intestinal issues and the wait for a deceased donor kidney can take 5-10 years. A direct match for our dad is blood type B or O. If a donor has blood type A or AB, a kidney paired exchange program is an option. Unlike other kidney failure patients, our dad is in the final or fifth stage of kidney failure and we do not know how much longer he has to live.

See our website at:  Supportferencjolesz.com

Needs a Kidney

Sergey Needs a Kidney

I'm from Ukraine and in our country transplant surgery is practically impossible. No government support, no special donation rules, and instead, a very high level of our nephrologists can't do this to help us with kidney disease probems. I had a nice life before my trouble started... Now I'm on Peritoneal dialysis more then 1,5 years. I try to live in full power. But some time it's impossible, you know... 5 times per day I have to change special 2 L of special liquid inside of my body. In any case my life will stop very fast. My doctor gives me around 2 more years in this regime. After that, nobody knows....My only hope is transplantation. Me and my closest family are looking all over the world for any possibility and I'm sure God will help me.

Meir
Needs a Kidney

Meir Needs a Kidney

My name is Meir.  I am married to Smadar and have 3 beautiful children, Noa, Nathaniel, and Yoelle (ages 7-12).

I was diagnosed with kidney disease when I was 13 years old. My father donated a kidney, but again I needed a kidney in my late 20's. My aunt then stepped up to the plate to donate. Both my father and aunt are in good health today with one kidney.

About 7 years ago I contracted a virus and my kidney stopped functioning. I cannot work, as I have to undergo dialysis treatment three times a week and travel frequently to Jerusalem for surgery on my veins, as dialysis for the past 6 years has taken its toll on my body.

Today, I am in desperate need of a kidney.

Maria
Needs a Kidney

Maria Needs a Kidney

I am posting this on behalf of my mother.  I am 16 years old and for 8 years I had to sit and watch helplessly as diaylsis drains my mom's energy. I don't get to do things a mother and a daughter would do like go shopping, to the park, or even teach me how to cook because she's constantly tired and weak. It breaks my heart to see her cry because her hands go numb or she gets cramps on her legs. She's had two hip replacements and still works full time. She's always been a hard worker yet she's never been able to catch a break. She's been on the transplant list for a long time and nothing has happened. If anyone can help her please email me. My mother is everything to me I want her to be happy again.

Zofit
Needs a Kidney

See Zofit on video- English

Zofit Needs a Kidney

My name is Zofit and I'm 29 years old. Starting from the age of 11 until today I have suffered from kidney failure. After a long wait I had my first kidney transplant operation which unfortunately wasn't successful; the kidney didn't last more than a few days. It has been now almost 9 years since that first and only operation and almost 20 long years of daily dialysis treatments without any prospect of hope or change for present or future.

Despite my chronic situation, I have managed with the help of the social security rehab program to learn a profession in book-keeping which is currently what I'm doing on a part-time basis due to my special needs. Shortly after my unsuccessful transplant operation, my father brought a friend to our house, a big hairy husky dog called Chetz (Arrow in Hebrew). This dog had a very therapeutic effect on me. It was definitely a love at first sight and though Chetz has died since then, I find great joy and satisfaction in caring for animals especially dogs and now have a small Chitzsu dog called Sandy. I know that the people around me are always amazed at the way I seem to gobble up life and they are all certain that were I only free of that dialysis machine no one could stop me …..
Currently I enjoy doing all kinds of crafts work, jigsaw puzzle, reading, walking my dog. I truly look forward to a future where I could start a family and move from the stage where I look after my own health to start caring and nurturing my own family cell. As my doctors have explained to me, due to my high level of antibodies the only way to ensure a successful transplant is to receive a kidney from a live donor. 

If you would like to donate a Kidney to Zofit, please contact the HOD Society at admin@hod.org or by calling 212-213-5087.

Joe
Needs a Kidney

Joe Needs a Kidney

Hello

My name is Joe Dorris. First, I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my message. I am a father of two and a grandfather of six. Two years ago, I lost the use of my kidneys. Due to my weakened condition, my family has to be in constant care of me including driving me to dialysis three days a week and waiting four hours on me there to drive me back. Until two years ago, I had always been actively involved in my community, my career, my farm, my church, and my family. What pains me most is not being able to actively participate in these things like I once could. I want to live to see each of my grandkids get married and see my great grandchildren. Aside from my kidneys, I am healthy and could live very long. I believe that with a new kidney - and a new chance at life - I can begin to resume these activities that I miss dearly. If there is a positive from this, it is that I have a deepened respect for the life the Lord has given me and will never dare take it for granted.

All medical cost will be covered by my insurance.

I am humbled that you have read and considered my request. I pray that you are able and willing to help.

If you would like to donate a Kidney to Joe (matching Blood Type: 0+), please contact the HOD Society at admin@hod.org or by calling 212-213-5087.

Meir
Needs a Kidney

Meir Needs a Kidney

My name is Meir and I am a 63-year-old dialysis patient for 5 years already. Prior to the dialysis, I was considered a strong, healthy man. I worked in a building. unfortunately, since dialysis, I am now extremely fragile and without strength. I am not allowed to drink water; only small sips. After dialysis, I return straight home, into bed.
I have 5 children; 2 are married and 3 are living at home. I have no desire to talk to them or even laugh with them. It pains me that I can no longer do anything around the house. I used to be the person who fixed everything around the house; today, no longer.
The entire household is under a great deal of stress right now because of me. My wife, who should live and be well, must now undertake both female and male roles around the house.
At times, I curse myself and want to die. What am I living for? To be a burden on everyone; to have everyone suffer because of me?
I am suffering a great deal. Please help me obtain a new kidney so I can live like everyone else and do mitzvot and chessed for Hakadosh Baruch Hu.
Tizku L’Mitzvot,
Meir
P.S. My blood type is A Positive .

Gary
Needs a Kidney

Gary Needs a Kidney

Please help. My dad is dying of kidney failure. He’s 58 years old and over the past 10 years he has been held up at gun point which caused him to lose his business and as a result, he has had to move his family. Shortly after losing his business, he had to have vascular surgery, quadruple bypass surgery and carotid artery surgery. He has been on disability for the last 3+ years and thus, has been unable to provide for his family. He will have to go on dialysis very soon and his doctors said that he will not survive that long on it, given his prior medical conditions.
My strong, amazing mother donated her kidney to my father a little over 2 years ago. The kidney has now failed. My brother was ready to donate his kidney to my father. 4 days before the surgery the doctors found a tumor on his kidney. The doctors will not allow me to donate my kidney because of low clearance. My dad needs all the help he can get. He is a thoughtful, amazing person that would do anything for anyone. My mother, brother and I want our dad to be around as long as he can. My dad’s insurance covers all of the medical expenses. We have no one else that can save my dad please help. We would all be forever grateful.
I hope for the opportunity to discuss this further and at the very least be able to hear your voice and thank someone who would be so brave that is willing to do this mitzvah to help someone. My dad needs all the help he can get. Thank you for taking the time to read my dad’s profile
Blood type is O Positive.

His creatinine is very high, around 4.5, and we’ve begun the search for a donor.
My dads blood type is O.
If there is anything else I can offer, let me know.
Thanks
Maor

Rachamim Needs a Kidney

Rachamim Type B Positive
My name is Rachamium. I am 46 years old and I live in Elad, Israel.
I was born in Petah Tikvah in 1962. I went through the usual track of education from elementary school through high school. After that, at age 18, I served in the Israeli Army as a soldier in the Elite Command Unit. I participated in the Lebanon War in 1982, when I was 20 years old.
After my service in the army, I learned in the Open University of Israel and graduated with a B.A. cum laude. For some time I worked as a teacher in mathematics.
At a later stage in my life, I became ill on account of both of my kidneys. I have been on dialysis for about a year and a half now, and I cannot work.

Bonnie Got a Kidney

 My name is Bonnie Morrissey and I was born at Brooklyn Jewish Hospital in 1950. I inherited polycystic kidney disease (PKD) from my mother. Both she and her only sibling died from the disease. My two sisters have also inherited PKD so that leaves no one in my family that can donate a kidney to me.

I am praying for a pre-emptive living donor since the wait list for a cadaveric donor is very long and I am not a good candidate for dialysis.  I hope you can help me!!

My family is my Mom, my Dad, my sister Mollie, my dog, Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop and Grandma. I like it when we’re all together. I have a good family. We laugh and have a lot of fun.
