Tim D. Coulter Sr.

Transplant Type:   Kidney

Dear friends and supporters,  

Tim needs a kidney transplant to get back to spending time with his wife (pictured with Tim above), children, and grandchildren. 

Tim is a man who, despite facing the challenges of a stroke and chronic kidney disease (CKD), is determined to embrace life to its fullest. In 2014, Tim's life took an unexpected turn when a stroke revealed underlying kidney issues. Since then, he has been navigating the complexities of CKD, undergoing dialysis while waiting for the possibility of a life-changing kidney transplant. Tim is not alone in this journey; he is surrounded by the love of his wife, five children, eight grandchildren, and a great-grandchild (with another on the way).

The living donor process has been disappointing.  The process is challenging.  The waiting continues, as the search for a living donor starts over / continues.

Tim’s new kidney comes at a very high cost.    

The average kidney transplant costs more than $400,000. Even with the support of health insurance, Tim still faces significant medical expenses following his transplant. Post transplant there will continue to be pressing financial needs including lifetime follow-up care and costly medications.  As Tim prepares for the transplant, the financial burden weighs heavily on his shoulders. On disability since his stroke, Tim and his family are living month to month, facing out-of-pocket expenses for insurance, hospital stays, post-transplant, there will be additional costs. 

This is where you can make a difference. Your generous contribution will not only alleviate the financial strain on patients like Tim and their families but will also play a crucial role in giving them the chance to live life with renewed vigor. Use the donate button on this page (Tim's story page) to help Tim.
