Jerry Sluman has lived with Polycystic Kidney Disease for last 7 years, and 8 months ago was diagnosed with End Stage Renal Disease (kidney failure). Left untreated, this stage of the disease can be fatal in a matter of weeks. Jerry was given two choices for treatment: go on dialysis or get a kidney transplant. Thankfully for Jerry, someone else - Brock Sabo - had recently received a “nudge from god” that could not be ignored - he need to donate his kidney. He went in to the hospital and got tested to see if his kidney would be a match for Jerry, and, as fate would have it, it was. He could not ignore this sign, and knew he only had one option: he was to donate his kidney to Jerry. Acting on this sign, on August 7th, 2018, Brock donated his kidney and changed Jerry’s life forever.
Brock, we recognize your endless compassion for others and going above and beyond to help others in need.
