"As a father, it is a challenge to watch his children cope with the challenges that they are facing with the medical condition at hand, the long term issues along with his diabetes, and finances," Jenkins wrote. "His wife and his children are the catalyst that keep him pushing on. They do what they can to find normalcy and routine as they tackle the challenges together."

The cost of a transplant is around $250,000. The GoFundMe was created for Edwards, his family and donor to "offset the costs of maintaining dialysis, medications, kidney transplant when the time comes, anti-rejection medication and lastly to help the donor with loss work time," Jenkins wrote. She also mentioned that anyone can be tested to be a donor, adding that even if they aren't a match for Edwards, they could help someone else.

The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs found in vertebrates. They are located on the left and right in the retroperitoneal space, and in adult humans are about 11 centimetres (4.3 in) in length.

Indiana Ear is a specialty clinic in northern Indiana focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the ear. Most often, individuals with troublesome ear symptoms seek care with a general practitioner, such as a family physician, or an ENT (ear, nose & throat) specialist.

Edward's blood type is O-positive, and those interested in helping can be tested at a site close to home, according to Edwards. If you aren't O-positive, Jenkins and Edwards still encourage you to go get tested.
