A local family is racing to raise money for a father’s kidney transplant. Shawn Douglass has no kidneys and he’s diagnosed with end stage renal failure.
He goes into dialysis three times each week, being treated for 4 hours each time.
The family must raise $10,000 by Nov. 30, or his kidney transplant scheduled for Dec. 22 will be canceled.
There’s a fundraiser Tues., Nov. 23, at Bully’s #10 in Spanish Springs from 6 to10 p.m. There’s no cover charge for this event, and there will be live music, raffles, food, drinks and a silent auction.
