Sheckles Siblings

STEVEN SHECKLES IS A HUSBAND, DAD, POP-POP, BROTHER, SON, UNCLE, GREAT UNCLE, COUSIN, AND FRIEND.  His kidney specialist has been preparing him that dialysis would soon begin because his kidney function keeps declining.  Steve had a fistula put in a few months ago so he would be prepared to start dialysis when needed.

RON SHECKLES IS A HUSBAND, DAD, PAPA, BROTHER, SON, UNCLE, GREAT UNCLE, COUSIN, AND FRIEND.  Ron was on dialysis 3 days a week.  He received a kidney transplant on March 26, 2021.

JERRY SHECKLES IS A HUSBAND, DAD, PAPAW, BROTHER, SON, UNCLE, GREAT UNCLE, COUSIN, AND FRIEND.  Jerry was on dialysis 3 days a week.  He received a kidney transplant on November 6, 2020.  

We also have two other family members that have PKD, but their kidney function hasn't reached a point where they are on the transplant list.

 

Please pray for Steven, Ron, Jerry, and all the people that are on the kidney transplant list.  According to the Donate Life website, Kidney Donation page there are 100,000 people on the national kidney transplant list. 

 

With a living kidney donor, sometimes a match is found within a year.  Whereas, it can take 3 to 5 years on the waiting list for a deceased donor.
