Some of you may know that Bobby has kidney disease. Over time, His condition has worsened causing His kidneys not to function well enough to keep Him alive. This is what he is facing now, and His treatment options are limited to dialysis treatments or a kidney transplant.
Bobby spends three days a week hooked up to a dialysis machine for nearly four hours each day. By the time He travels to and comes home, He has spent up all of the day, and when He does get home He is often very tired. Being on dialysis is physically and emotionally draining. Getting regular dialysis treatments, usually three times a week for four hours at a time, will help His kidneys do their job and keep him alive, but a transplant would offer Him more freedom and the ability to live a longer, healthier, more normal life. A transplant would also give Him more time to do the fun things he enjoys most, like spending time with his family, friends, and Wrestling.
Bobby has received blessings in His life, which is why he believes it is very important to pay it forward. When Bobby's health permits He travels around the country to various schools and civic groups, providing mentor-ship and speaking with students, parents, and teachers about Bullying in our public schools.
Asking family members or friends to donate is difficult for Bobby, but it greatly improves His chances of getting a transplant. A living kidney donation typically lasts longer and has better function. Its been a long hard struggle over the years. Bobby is trying to stay healthy all the while keeping up with His mission of trying to Help our kids and the other charities He is currently working with.
We are asking friends, fans, and family to help Bobby out by purchasing one of His "Donate an Organ" T Shirts. All proceeds minus the production cost and postage will go towards the Escrow account to help get Him on the list. You can also help by sharing his story with everyone you know. At the very least, we want to bring awareness to kidney disease and living donation. We are hopeful these efforts will help Bobby receive a kidney sooner and encourage others to consider helping the many other people on the wait list.
Thank You All
