Paul Gibbs is personal friend of mine. He is a very talented and ultra-creative man, a film student and part-time employee at the Clark Planetarium. He is a loving brother, devoted son and doting uncle, helping to raise his 4-year nephew and 2-year old niece. And he is very sick. He has suffered from a kidney abnormality all of his life. In November, his health took a serious turn for the worse. His kidneys have failed. He is now in need of a kidney transplant in order to survive. Unfortunately, Paul has no health insurance. Medicare has agreed to pay for the transplant surgery, but not for the anti-rejection medications that he will have to be on for the rest of his life or any of the other costs he will incur.
He needs our help. No one should have to choose between food and shelter or life-saving medications.
A blog has been set up at www.kidney4paul.blogspot.com to keep people informed of his progress as well as to raise money to help him with these enormous costs. All donations are gratefully and lovingly accepted, whether it’s $5 or $500. No gift is too small (or too large).
Thank you so very much for your help – for your thoughts, your donations, and for spreading the word to others who may also offer to help. Together, we can help save a life.
