Gregory’s Story

Site created on March 11, 2019

PLEASE REFER TO MY MARCH 13, 2019 JOURNAL ENTRY REGARDING DONATIONS. Welcome to our CaringBridge website. This is to  keep family and friends updated in one place regarding Greg's journey for a new kidney transplant. THIS IS ALSO TO CIRCULATE THAT GREG IS IN NEED OF A KIDNEY DONOR and to raise funds for medical expenses associated with both Greg and the donor's transplant.   We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

Journal entry by Robyn Kruse

SEE PICTURE! GREG HAS A DONOR! God is so good! He does answer prayers!  We are beyond thankful and so, so blessed by Him!  If all goes well, he could be looking at a transplant as early as late September or early October.  This would be wonderful as his overall health continues to decline due to the daily dialysis.  He is constantly weak and light-headed and his weight is down to 129 lbs!

Your continued thoughts and prayers, as always, are welcomed and greatly appreciated! Now we are focusing on our fund-raising for out-of-pocket expenses - not only medical bills, but food and lodging as Greg will have to stay in Augusta near the hospital for the first week or two after he is released from the hospital after transplant for follow-up visits and close monitoring to make sure there is no issue with rejection.  Once he is clear to come home, he will still have monthly trips back to August for the first 6-9 months following surgery and if all of that goes well, he can then resort to annual visits/check-ups.

Donations can be made to:
Greg Kruse Kidney Transplant Fund
(checks made payable to Greg Kruse)
South Atlantic Bank
PO BOX 3077
Bluffton, SC 29910
Please write account number 1300000284 on checks.

OR by the GoFundMe link found on our page here.  (Please do not attempt to donate to Greg by using the "tribute" option on this site as that goes directly to CaringBridge for its support in operating its site)

To God be the Glory, great things He hath done!
